Join ArtCorps and volunteer your creative talents to strengthen sustainable development in Central America in 2010. Through community arts projects, artists educate and inspire people to participate actively in improving the environmental, health, and social conditions in their communities.

Artists strengthen dialogue between community members and the organization, improve community education and empower local leadership.
