Passion 4 Youth Fine Arts Program

In 2009 OIM initiated the Passion 4 Youth Fine Arts Program. Its goal is to provide a supportive environment which nurtures creativity, strengthens self-esteem and empower homeless and at-risk youth to end the cycle of homelessness.
We will help young people discover and develop their talents and build self-esteem in an environment that is supportive and interactive, working with them individually to achieve their goals. Through our fine arts program, youth will use a variety of mediums, including painting, photography, drawing, and sculpting, to express themselves, develop positive self-esteem and self worth, and work toward the realization of their individual goals.
Trained volunteers help run our youth outreach program. Volunteer services include the following:
Meals and/or dessert
Youth Art Show assistance (twice annually)
