Who are we?

Hollywood HEART develops character strengths, confidence, and resiliency in at-risk youth through purposeful engagement in the arts.

Hollywood HEART teaching artists work as Creative Co-Authors by partnering with youth (Artists) through collaborative instruction and exploration in visual arts, acting, creative writing, photography, music and vocal performance, fashion, spoken-word, and film-making.

All HH programs focus on character strength and resiliency as defined by (6) specific factors: Grit, Self Control, Zest, Social Intelligence, Optimism, and Curiosity. We currently offer year­ round Artist Journey workshops as well as an annual summer arts camp for youth who have been impacted by HIV/AIDS.

Hollywood HEART is proud to be recognized as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

"At HH, we passionately believe that destinies are malleable and that even life stories of trauma and tragedy can be re-written. "
