The program serves both Transitional Age Youth ( age 16-25) who are experiencing or at risk of unstable housing, and individuals recently involved with the justice system or with a history of incarceration.
Painted Brain’s Academy was established to harness technology for social good as a catalyst to assist individuals in improving their mental wellness and to provide marketable skills for the workforce. Recently in partnership with CCAV and Antelope Valley Youthbuild, a charter school, we began a tech training and workforce development program for transitional age youth focused on creating jobs in media and tech.
