About West Palm Beach Center for Arts & Technology

Established in 2018, The West Palm Beach Center for Arts and Technology (WestPalmCAT) offers arts education to high school youth and targeted job training, support, and employment services to prepare adults and students to obtain and retain local jobs. The WestPalmCAT is modeled after Pittsburgh’s Manchester Bidwell Center, founded by entrepreneur Bill Strickland. As a result, 79% of adults who complete the program attain employment and over 95% of high school students enrolled in the program graduate high school. Bill Strickland envisioned a thriving global network of centers that provide high school students mentorship opportunities in the arts, and unemployed, underemployed, or adults in transition with life-changing career training. Therefore, WestPalmCAT contributes to that vision by working with the West Palm Beach community.
