Responding to Covid-19
JXTA is prepared to supplement safe and sick time for our youth apprentices, artists, and team during these closures. JXTA currently employs 54 youth apprentices (and an average of 70 annually) who are paid $11.75-$12.75/hour, along with two assistants and 30 adult teaching artists and staff.
When the COVID-19 shutdown began we asked our supporters for $200,000 to help cover April and May wages while apprentices and staff stay home, healthy, and connected. Thanks to our wonderful funders, we have closed the gap by $120,000. This week as we #GiveAtHome, Amplify Your Impact by helping us raise the remaining $80,000 to keep the creativity flowing while our apprentices safely socially distance and continue their creative work from home.
Follow along on social media to learn more about how to #AmplifyYourImpact.
Build JXTA. Build the future.
We’ve launched the largest initiative in our history: a $14 million capital campaign to build a state-of-the-art facility at our current location.
