Inspire a Child -EIGHT TO CREATE. We will profile one Arts to Grow student for EIGHT WEEKS through the end of the year to highlight how arts education can impact kids in at-risk schools. And with your support, we can help inspire more young people by expanding our arts education programs next year.
Can you help today? WE NEED 75 SUPPORTERS TO GIVE JUST $20 EACH, so we can meet our year-end fundraising goal and continue our Theater Workshop Program for 3rd – 4th graders at a low income school in Cypress Hills, Brooklyn.
This is Justin. He is an energetic and fun character, and this was his first year with an Arts to Grow program. His teacher comments “Justin’s confidence has really grown thanks to his experience with memorizing and practicing lines to perform in the program”. His middle school program in Brooklyn performed a full scale “Optimistic Orphan” musical based on Annie this Spring. Currently, funding for Arts to Grow’s theater program at his former elementary school has run out and we need your help to bring it back.
As many of our supporters know, Arts to Grow plays a vital role in shaping the educational outcomes of at-risk youth. During November/December we want to raise $1,500 in online contributions to continue our theater workshop for 40 underserved 3rd – 4th graders at Cypress Hills Local Development Corporation’s/PS 7 After School program in Brooklyn.
Currently, we have over 50 schools on our waiting list for dance, theater, music & visual arts programs. These programs are always NO COST to students.
DONATE NOW to support kids like Justin, and you will play a vital role in boosting student achievement and self-confidence through creative expression. THANK YOU for changing the life of a child!
