Want to become a Service Provider?

While Creative Kids provides funding for cultural participation, Service Providers offer the connection between children and creative activities. Service Providers range from piano teachers offering private lessons from their homes to businesses with private and group lessons, to non-profit organizations that run, artistic, heritage and cultural programming for youth. 

Any instructor, business and organization wishing to teach Creative Kids grant recipients can download and submit the service provider registration form. The service provider guide is a great introduction to the program and answers a collection of frequently asked questions.
