It takes stuff to run an organization like Engine. We offer screenprinting, a ceramic studio, a darkroom, a media lab, a FabLab, and a woodshop. We hire artists who teach to mentor the kids. We teach valuable skills like 3D design, animation, graphic design, and introduce kids to 3D printing and digital fabrication.

We run after school programs, camps, and classes for youth, from all socio-economic backgrounds. Our sliding scale payment policy frequently (almost always) means we have to rely on other ways to subsidize classes for youth so we can continue to operate. And, we know some of the items are ambitious, but those things lead to more capacity of skills development, workforce training, and earned income. We’d be happy to tell you how. We dream big!
