Did you know…
91 percent of Americans believe that the arts are vital to providing a well-rounded education, and young people who study the arts consistently demonstrate higher levels of empathy, social tolerance and civic engagement.
Low-income students who are highly engaged in the arts are twice as likely to graduate college as their peers with no arts education.
Early science learning is important for all students, but especially for underrepresented students who are less likely to be exposed to science through their families and communities.
Only 36 percent of high school graduates are prepared to pursue a college-level science course, and only 16 percent of high school seniors are keen on pursuing STEM careers.

Our Nonprofit Partners
These are just some of the inspiring partners we work with to help build creative communities across the nation:
They strive to provide privatized instruction to young children in need through volunteer efforts from high school, college students, and adult volunteers with a musical background.
They bring to life the vision of two young brothers. Anyone, anywhere in the world, can participate, creating “arts/handicrafts” which will be delivered to hospitalized children (the “little hearts”) worldwide.
