The goal of this council is to highlight youth voices to advance the state of arts education in New Jersey. We’re doing this by engaging youth with opportunities and content for them to advocate for stronger and more arts programming within their school. This council is led by Arts Ed NJ staff and facilitators Italy Ja’rae Lee and Liv Belasco, both alumni of the prestigious NJ Governor’s Awards in Arts Education for spoken word and advocacy, 11 Youth Arts Ed Leaders and approximately 35 members. Our members serve an integral part in making sure that the change and growth that we seek reaches far and wide throughout our state.
