4. About the Ministry:

Here is a brief paragraph (120 words) describing the church or ministry to be served (size, demographics, year started, etc.).

Griot is closely partnered with First Presbyterian Church in Clarksdale and receives support, volunteers, and board oversight by the Session. We foster creativity and lifelong learning through the arts and employment opportunities, empowering young people to create positive change in their lives and community. Griot has two main programs: The Griot Youth Program is an after-school arts program for 3rd-12th graders which provides arts classes, tutoring, college prep, and weekly bible studies to over 50 students. The Meraki Job Training Program employs young adults at the Meraki Roasting Company, teaching vital job skills while roasting and selling artisanal coffee. Students attend classes focusing on communication skills, resume building, and employment basics. Graduates from the program are placed in permanent jobs.
