West Palm Beach Center for Arts and Technology

West Palm Beach Center for Arts and Technology

Established in 2018, and under the board leadership of former mayor, Jeri Muoio, the West Palm Beach Center for Arts and Technology offers arts education to historically underserved high school youth and targeted job training, support and employment services to prepare unemployed and underemployed adults to obtain and retain living-wage local jobs.  The WestPalmCAT is modeled after Pittsburgh’s Manchester Bidwell Center, founded by entrepreneur and McArthur Genius Award winner Bill Strickland. Since 1968, the Center has developed successful strategies to address low educational achievement among youth and high unemployment rates among adults. The WestPalmCAT, coming to West Palm Beach, Florida’s Historic Northwest District, will be the 12th CAT in the United States. To learn more visit  wpbcat.org.
