Through the Links Arts Facet’s CULTURAL ART LITERACY PROGRAM, the mission of The Arts facet is to encourage and enhance the appreciation, knowledge, and support for cultural enrichment for our youth, our Link sisters and community with amazing institutional partnerships in the Greater Miami area and beyond.
The program builds upon the former L.E.T.S Draw [2011-2015] project and is in partnership with Services to Youth and National CARES Mentoring Movement. ArtSPARK is designed to support creative genius, through facet partnership and group mentoring in an effort to increase exposure for Overtown "opportunity" youth to S.T.E.A.M based programs.
