Promoting creativity in youth and education.

Creative expression and digital literacy are essential 21st century skills. We’re working to ensure that all students have access to creative curricula and opportunities, and that students and teachers are equipped with the tools they need to succeed.

Expanding access to Adobe Express.

Through Adobe Express for Education, we offer our easy-to-use, task-based creativity applications to teachers and students in the US along with tutorials, courses, lesson plans, and video guides to help them start their creative journeys. In 2022, we put Adobe Express in the hands of more than 40 million K–12 students globally.


Through Adobe Express for Nonprofits, we offer free licenses to over 10 million global nonprofits to help them engage donors and drive greater impact.

Enhancing education through Adobe Creative Campuses.

We’re engaging with college students across the US at more than 50 designated Adobe Creative Campuses. This program spotlights leading colleges and universities that recognize the value of teaching digital literacy in higher education. For example, as part of the curriculum at the Annenberg School of Communication and Journalism at the University of Southern California, students interested in pursuing careers in design and creativity can enroll in a free 10-week certification course taught by Adobe experts.

Driving global reach and global impact.

Through our India 2% for Youth program, we are working with local partners Pratham Education Foundation and Agastya International Foundation to create opportunities that promote creative learning among children and youth in rural and remote areas across India. We’ve connected with more than 100,000 students in 800 villages via Creative Clubs and supported Mobile Innovation Labs that reach an additional 21,000 children.

Nurturing creativity around the world.

Creativity is the great enabler. It has the power to create change in the world by uniting us, helping us cope, and inspiring us.

Empowering creators through Adobe Creative Residency.

This program supports creativity in the community in two ways: through museum collaborations that provide greater community access to arts education and raise the visibility of diverse creators, and through the Community Fund, which supports creators during times of extraordinary hardship.

Addressing inequity with the Adobe Film and TV Fund.

Established in 2024, the Adobe Film and TV Fund addresses the inequity in funding, career, and training opportunities in the entertainment business. Our goal is to accelerate the careers of thousands of underrepresented and emerging creators on-screen and behind the camera.

Championing diverse perspectives.

As a part of our longstanding commitment to elevate underrepresented voices and create more equitable access, Adobe is investing in diverse creators and promoting systems and policies that give everyone the opportunity to create and make their voices heard.

Elevating creators through Diverse Voices.

We launched this program on to enable everyone to engage and share their stories. We believe that hearing diverse perspectives can help us evolve what’s possible for the next generation.
