Micro Grant awarded to Creative Outlets and the Cape Cod Museum of Art

The Cape and Islands United Way recently awarded another outstanding project for the Mobilizing Volunteers Micro Grant Program.


This project, called Creative Outlets and the Cape Cod Museum of Art, was started to support the young adults of Cape Cod through a peer mentoring creative outlet workshop. The first volunteer opportunity, held on August 5th, focused on creating t-shirts and masks on a windy day at the museum. This gathering allowed for supporters, parents, teens, and artists to meet and paint together to help fight the "covid blues" through creativity, encouragement, and community.


The second volunteer opportunity was held at the Wellfleet Drive-in on August 9th, where the previously created t-shirts, masks, and teen art were displayed along with Creative Outlets literature.


All Creative Outlets workshops, held each Sunday afternoon through the summer are free to young adults from ages 12-16, although a pre-registration is required.
