The AIGA Link Program
Founded in 1994, the AIGA Link Program is a Seattle-based group of board members, volunteers and a part-time administrator dedicated to enriching the lives of high school students with a passion for art. Our innovative program provides monthly workshops, portfolio development, a gallery show and scholarship awards for higher education. The AIGA Link Program's success has inspired similar programs across the nation.
Our vision in LINK is to be a place and people that function as mentors to grant students a greater purview and understanding of what is possible in their lives. We seek to foster life-altering experiences and connections, underscoring the fact that they have all the raw talents needed to succeed. This means we:
- engage people in a genuine and helpful manner
- provide new artistic experiences with great role models
- nurture a network of dedicated support entities and resources
- grow in understanding, expertise and commitment
- maintain positive student, volunteer and partner relationships
