SRBCC offers programs designed to engage and support young people in their personal, social, and educational development.
Our Arts Apprenticeships pay stipends to youth that meet all attendance and participation requirements.

Providing stipends supports the economic equity of youth, families, and communities by reducing financial barriers for youth to participate in programming, promoting youth financial literacy and economic mobility.
