Sewing Class Programs


Arizonans for Children provides free lessons in basic sewing, hand sewing and machine sewing, as well as art and craft classes.  Creative and practical projects that can be completed in one day are taught by trained volunteer instructors.  In a positive environment the ‘fun projects’ are designed to build self-esteem, encourage creativity and teach practical life skills for youths who age out of the foster care system.

Classes are taught throughout the valley and all materials are provided.  Youths are encouraged to make something for themselves and also create projects that can be given to others.

Through compassionate teaching skills the youths learn to gain trust in adult mentors who share their passion for arts, crafts and sewing during each class.
