ArtsTech is a public/private collaborative venture that offers young people and the community an opportunity to advance their artistic and technological skills in an entrepreneurial business environment. In conjunction with the City of Kansas City, Missouri, and the Missouri Department of Public Safety, COMBAT is the crucial anchor partner with ArtsTech. Involving Storytellers, Inc. in the consortium strengthened the group’s creative thinking and connected ArtsTech to the growing local community artist population.​

Young individuals have the power to embrace their identities, shape their destinies, and positively impact the world around them.

Mission & Vision

ArtsTech's mission is to better the lives of underserved urban youth by developing artistic, technical, health, and educational skills.
ArtsTech accomplishes this by operating a center for youth enterprise that provides educational and health services and hands-on training in fine arts and digital literacy. Additionally, ArtsTech builds and manages collaborative public/private partnerships that benefit the community.


Imagine a community where peace and justice are the norm and violence and social disparities are the exception. Imagine young people’s voices being heard and acted upon because they are our change agents for a better community. Imagine neighbors being neighborly and setting a civil tone for our current leaders. Our young people will lead a healthier future through open and honest dialogue. This is our vision.
