Our mission is to provide youth with creative, technical and educational resources. Our vision is to lay the groundwork for a just society by creating a community that provides youth with support, expanded opportunities and alternative definitions of success.
Over the past twelve years, Workshop Houston has grown from its modest beginnings as a community bike shop to an innovative and vibrant youth development agency in the heart of the Third Ward of Houston, Texas. Using the power of the arts – specifically music production (Beat Shop), fashion design (Style Shop), discovery-based learning (Scholar Shop), and most recently, dance and performing arts (Dance Shop) – Workshop Houston’s programs deeply impact the lives of young people from some of Houston’s most underserved communities. These programs give youth the opportunity to build skills and self-confidence, develop a meaningful creative practice, and excel in school and beyond. The shops are open to students in middle and high school every afternoon during the school year and for eight weeks in the summer. Our professional teaching mentors are experts in their fields, and the programs are completely free to participants.
We are actively expanding to serve more students, and will be opening a dramatically improved facility for our programs in 2018. We invite you be a part of the vital creative resources we offer to youth in Houston, and hope you will choose to join the caring community that makes Workahop Houston possible. Thank you in advance for all of your love and continued support!
