Marrow PDX


Marrow aims to empower teens to take ownership over their education and to foster a community of youth who are visually, socially and culturally literate.

Bottom Line for Portland

Marrow provides a safe space for creative youth development—including both educational and actionable opportunities in the humanities, the arts, practical skills and activism—to any interested teen in Portland.

"Marrow is a radical, accessible learning space, centering the most marginalized youth voices. This space has enriched the lives of young queer, trans, physically disabled, mentally ill, black and brown youth, creating safer spaces for anti-oppressive learning." —Ayita Malila, Marrow participant and facilitator
