The Native American After School Art Program (NAASAP) unites Native American youth and assists them in developing skills and perspectives that will result in an increased knowledge and sense of pride in their cultural identity. Through community arts programming, youth become self-empowered to effect positive change in their own lives and in the Native American community of Baltimore. The Native American After School Art Program (NAASAP) exists to provide a safe, structured, environment for Baltimore's Native youth to assemble themselves together. NAASAP programming presents Art as a vehicle for young people to address issues that are important to them. NAASAP lifts up the voices of Baltimore's Native American youth as they are empowered to work creatively toward real goals. Their sense of purpose, efficacy and ownership of their community grows in this process. NAASAP is YOUTH RUN. Curriculum and class structure is developed by participating young people.
