Cre8tive YouTH*ink is a non-profit creative arts youth development organization. Using elements of developmental psychology, attachment theory, social justice youth development, and critical pedagogy, we collaborate with arts professionals to design projects that revive the spirit of apprenticeship in the arts, pairing creative urban youths with top artists, journalists and technical professionals in the making of real works of art.

In the words of Jerry Otero (aka Mista Oh), Cre8tive YouTH*ink’s founder and director, “Cre8tive YouTHink’s public-art projects help foster young people’ positive and conscious development by using an ‘each one teach one’ peer-to-peer methodology that encourages the development of a different, very personal sense of civic and personal awareness. This is just one of the ways we help young people to build the assets they need to become more conscious and involved citizens.”
