Would you like to learn more about how to run a non-profit?  Do you have great ideas about future classes and events we could offer at CultureWorks? Do you like dessert?  This may be the place for you!

The Student Advisory Council provides an opportunity for students to exercise their voice in the running of CultureWorks.  We will meet every other Tuesday to learn about, and practice, skills in marketing, event planning, brainstorming, and fundraising, helping to ensure the short-term and long-term sustainability of the organization.  We’ll also make some great art together, which will be sold at student shows and our yearly fundraising event.
