sy!c program description
The City of Socorro prides itself in creating artistic areas that welcome a wide variety of community members to appreciate the colorful pockets of creativity & culture through the collaboration of the Socorro Youth !n Culture Program (SY!C)
In 2020, the City of Socorro received a grant from the Paso Del Norte Health Foundation to create an afterschool art program for children ages 5- 17 who found themselves drawn to creativity but in need of a safe space giving birth to SY!C.
Under the direction of community artists from diverse backgrounds a team of incredibly talented artists founded the City’s very first public art platform and is still working, practicing, and honing in on the craft to beautify our city.
