From 2019 to 2020, TakingITGlobal, in partnership with Adobe, supported 240 creative youth organizations who are working to ensure equitable access to creative education. Through the Creative Cloud Donations Program and Adobe Project Grant, these creative youth organizations create spaces for young creatives to develop and grow their creative, technical, and cognitive skills for success in school, work, and life.
In 2020, in the midst of the global pandemic, all grantees and their projects complied with the applicable public health guidelines in their respective countries and by the World Health Organization, Health Canada, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The creative youth organizations from this global network revamped their in-person programming to be delivered and engage their young creatives virtually. These programs have become outlets for expression, creativity, and wellbeing in the midst of all the uncertainties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Creative Cloud Donations Program distributed over 16,000 Adobe Creative Cloud Shared Device Licenses to actively engaged 58,231 young creatives from 240 creative youth organizations from 43 countries.Learn more
