A community based program, teaming teens with a professional artist in which participants build self-esteem as they utilize innate and learned artistic skills to refurbish furniture for sale.

General guidance is given, but the participants' personal artistic skill, taste and values are reflected in the pieces.
DesignIt! is a workforce development program for youth designed and coordinated by Jump Street. It is a multi-disciplined training program to provide alternative arts-based employment for youth by creating products to fill non-arts agency needs. It is workforce development, community service, life skills building, an arts experience and more.Teens are hired as apprentice artists to train with a professional carpenter and artist, working thirty hours per week. The end product is then donated to a community organization.
Jump Street is very excited about our new partnership with Harrisburg Police Athletic League (HPAL). HPAL wants to add arts and culture activities to the already successful youth athletic programs. We have started engaging youth with monthly recreational game nights in Elementary Schools. Through a community planning process, we have identified a fantastic opportunity to provide weekly events for youth.
We have put together a team of professional artists, professional athletes and police officers to engage youth in their own neighborhoods. We will travel to several playgrounds and parks throughout the city on a rotating basis to provide kids with fun and exciting activities.
The partnership will use portable skate ramps to go along with our highly successful Peace Wall project. Local professional skaters will be on site to provide kids with safety equipment and instruction. An artist will be there to help kids do fun and creative projects. All along the way, Harrisburg Police Officers will be facilitating the arts and athletic programs.
Jazz is an American experience connecting our past and present. Students will meet to explore America's only indigenous art form, enhancing their interest in music appreciation and study. Using Americans for the Arts program materials, "Jazz: An American Story", as the founding of Words with Wings participants study the history of jazz, its performance, and the future of jazz.
Throughout Words with Wings the participants learn the important connections between jazz, our nation's history, and its social role as an early meeting place for people of different races. They will learn the various facets of music production and meet with local jazz musicians, music producers, and others involved with the music industry. Students will be able to have a hands-on music experience, mentored by a few of the best jazz players in our region.
With the help of local artists, students meet and discuss literature, such as folklore, myths, and plays and create an art piece related to the literature. At the end of the ImagineNations program, students have an understanding of storytelling, literature, and how art is created.
