Through our arts portfolio, we increase access to high quality arts programming that engages underserved youth and empowers them through the development of new skills. We believe that the arts serve as a powerful gateway for engaging the minds of at-risk youth and contributing to their cognitive, socio-emotional, and personal development. We know that participating in the arts helps prevent students from dropping out of school and keeps them engaged throughout their academic experience. Our partnerships allow young people to discover their passions, hone their skills, and engage in self-expression and creativity. Together with our partners, we empower young change-makers to envision and create stronger communities and a better world.
