Fall Volunteer Opportunities

Artists Creating Together (ACT) brings students with disabilities together with artists and art projects. Art breaks down many of the emotional and psychological barriers that hold students back by building self-confidence and personal satisfaction. Art accomplishments advance learning skills, improve classroom behavior and show students that they are more self-sufficient and capable than they thought. Their new confidence produces new personal breakthroughs.
The confidence and the breakthroughs help them move from at risk students who may drop out of school to successful young people who have more tools to make positive contributions in the community.
ACT is the largest non-profit organization in Michigan bringing artists, art projects, teachers and students with disabilities together. Last year, ACT helped more than 8,500 individuals celebrate, succeed and grow with art.
