The Silicon Valley Community Foundation (SVCF) has awarded EPACENTER with an Arts & Culture Community Action Grant in support of our job training programs for East Palo Alto youth.

The grant will support our students’ creation of an iconic mural at an affordable housing complex in East Palo Alto using a community design process to engage local residents in decision-making about the look and feel of the mural.

Lead Muralist, Cristina Velazquez, who grew up in East Palo Alto, will teach students how to design the mural using advanced design technology.

We sincerely appreciate the SVCF’s support in helping us create jobs for youth in our city!
