Mint Artists Guild’s programs revolve around three principles: youth development, creative careers and entrepreneurship, and community service and collaboration in Detroit.
We borrow ideas from more established youth arts and employment organizations and invent our own when we see or hear of needs and opportunities. Though we are a 501c3 nonprofit, we are agile, creative and entrepreneurial. This means our programs change and grow regularly. Currently, they consist of our spring and fall Learn & Earn, our summer jobs, the Paint Detroit with Generosity initiative and Mint creative services.
