Each year, Black Arts MKE partners with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee to provide summer internships for talented young artists and future business professionals. These youth put their artistic training into practice while building resume worthy experience and earning wages, which are subsidized through state government programs.

The atmosphere working with our instructors and the camp students always have been a phenomenal experience and I love to surround myself with people who bring amazing vibes and attitudes. This experience has helped me become a better communicator. My future plans include college and becoming a criminologist.” Niya Winston, Arts Camp ’20 & '19
