Youth Spirit Artworks, Street Spirit

Collection Description

Street Spirit is a monthly newspaper that is sold by homeless people in Berkeley and Oakland. It is written by and for unhoused people as well as their advocates. We report rigorously on the politics and policies that impact our community, and publish personal essays, profiles, and poetry. Our mission is to provide economic opportunity for our homeless neighbors while also creating a platform where they can share their own stories. 

We are published by Youth Spirit Artworks (YSA). YSA is an art jobs training program located in Berkeley, California which is committed to empowering homeless and low-income young people (ages 16-25) in the Bay Area. YSA’s mission is to use art jobs and jobs training to transform the lives of youth, giving young people the skills, experience, and self-confidence needed to meet their full potential. Art saves lives!
