Please donate to support AFH summer jobs for teens!

As the weather heats up this summer, so too does the activity inside the EpiCenter. Summer is our busiest time of year, when 120 Boston youth join us for 25 hours a week. We’ve got some exciting new projects lined up with some well-known and respected organizations. Here's a sneak peak at upcoming projects from the Graphics and Sculpture studio:

Designing John Hancock’s parking structure:

In Boston, the John Hancock Tower is an icon of the city skyline with its sleek, reflective blue glass exterior.
This summer, Artists For Humanity teens are focusing their attention on the Tower's less iconic parking facility. AFH will conceptualize three design directions for wall coverings that will beautify the garage's exterior and tie the structure in with the John Hancock brand.

Development of a brand identity for Foxrock Properties:
Foxrock Properties asked us to create an entire brand identity for their mixed-use medical and corporate office complex. AFH youth will come up with a name for the complex and its two buildings, design logos, choose color palettes, compose typography for signage, and create graphics for the exterior of each structure. Collaborating the Sculpture studio, teens will design two monument signs for the office complex based on the logos, color palettes, and aesthetic of the new "brand." The team will design a similar monument sign for another office complex owned by the same company in Weymouth.

Creative signage and more city bike racks:
The Sculpture studio will work with AIDS Action to design creative signage for their new facility in Jamaica Plain, as well as create more amazing bike racks for the City of Boston!

Please help fund summer jobs for teens!
Please help support our programs this summer with a donation.
There are so many opportunities available, but not enough funds to provide as many jobs as we’d like for teens. Your support is absolutely vital to help us provide valuable, educational jobs for our youth in this difficult economic environment.
