Creative Action is an arts-based youth development organization that provides hands-on, fun, creative learning programs in classrooms, in after-school settings, and in the community. As one of the largest youth arts organizations in Central Texas, Creative Action reaches more than 20,000 youths each year.

Each year, hundreds of people give their time to help Creative Action achieve its mission. It's always seeking individuals and groups to help as one-time volunteers or in an ongoing capacity in the following areas: program assistance, community events, and administrative and fundraising tasks. Head here to see a list of current opportunities.

Creative Action's signature fundraising event, Big Hair Country Fair, is unlike any event in Austin. The fun-filled evening features wild carnival games and fun prizes, big hairdos at a vintage beauty parlor, live music, a barbecue and bourbon dinner, surprise bags, youth performances, a live auction, and signature drinks.

The Creative Circle is a monthly giving society that provides ongoing support for critical Creative Action programming, such as scholarships for the after-school program.
