Arts to Grow is delighted to welcome Nick Boaro to our Board of Directors. Nick joined ATG last summer as a Co-Chair for Youth, I.N.C.’s Celebration program. Despite his late start he quickly took on a leadership role, successfully leveraging connections at his firm EY as well as Morgan Stanley to forge two new corporate engagements in support of ATG’s work with children.

Nick was drawn to ATG because, having moved around a lot, he’s seen firsthand the difference that the arts can make in the life of a community. “Those communities that were involved in the arts and outdoor activities stood out as genuinely happier people,” he explains. “For a community to be involved in the arts, it has to start with the kids. This is what drew me to ATG: seeing what the organization does firsthand and the joy it brings to the children is exciting.”

To those interested in getting involved with Arts to Grow, Nick would recommend taking the time to see the programs in action. “You can see the children enjoy the programs and you can’t help but notice the sense of self-accomplishment and pride they have,” he says, adding that there are a wide range of events to choose from. “For me, it was a short play, but ATG programs cover all aspects of the arts.”

He also credits his time as a Celebration Co-Chair with helping him learn about Arts to Grow. His involvement allowed him to “have focused time with Mallory, the board, and established programs to learn a lot about the organization very quickly.”

Nick officially joined the board in December. We are thrilled to have him join us in helping more children love learning through the arts.

Arts to Grow’s programs are made possible through the work of skilled volunteers.  To learn more about how you can get involved, please visit our website.
