EQUIP YOUTH + UPLIFT COMMUNITIES THROUGH MUSIC AND FASHION
Who We Are
Refresh Collective is a non-profit arts and youth development organization founded in 2010 by Dee Jay Doc in Cleveland, Ohio. We are music producers, songwriters and screen printers who harness the power of music and fashion to equip youth and uplift communities.
What We Do
Our neighborhood recording studios and screen printing shops offer workshops, summer camps and in-school programs that have helped over 6000 youth and adults write songs and design t-shirts that address social justice, education, and health concerns. Youth grow in confidence and character as they craft their message and build strong relationships. Young adults develop transferable employment and leadership skills while planning, producing, and promoting our collaborative work. Professional artists develop new work, perform community concerts and mentor Cleveland's youth.
Why It Matters
Cleveland's inner-city youth experience a disproportionate rate of poverty, homelessness, violence, and abuse. Refresh Collective is uniquely qualified and has proven capabilities to build intentional relationships, create safe spaces, deliver arts programming and provide workforce skill development from caring professional artists.
Our artists are mentors who teach with care and commitment. In fact, the demand for our work has grown. You can help us increase our capacity to serve more Cleveland youth in 2020. Your donation makes a BIG difference!
