THE STORY:

Hi Family and Friends,

Thanks in advance for your generosity - whether you give $1 or $100, I invite you to partner with us and support our work advancing learning and improving graduation rates in NYC schools.

Thanks, Philip

Have you heard? Urban Arts Partnership (UAP) is NYC's largest and fastest-growing arts education organization! Our work advances the artistic, intellectual and social achievement of underserved public school students through the arts. 

How do we do it? EVERY DAY, 130 UAP Teaching Artists – experts in innovative arts-based learning – enters the classroom to engage students in their education, making academic content accessible through the arts and ultimately propelling students at risk of failure to unlock their potential. Our intrepid Teaching Artists bring their expertise to more than 100 Title 1 (low-income) public schools in NYC.

Why do we do what we do? The odds are stacked against our students. But our Teaching Artists (TAs) get results. Classes that work with TAs pass their core subjects at higher rates than their peers, score higher on tests, improve their attendance, get more involved in their communities and are better equipped to conquer the world.

How many students do we reach? Right now, our TAs are working with 12,000 students across NYC to complete their first unit of the school year. That is 12,000 horizons broadening; 12,000 sparks of curiosity; 12,000 opportunities to impart change; and 12,000 steps toward closing the achievement gap in NYC.

How can you get involved? Our TAs are working hard in schools, and you are an important part of the equation. Today, YOU can join the UAP vanguard! Ensure that 12,000 NYC public school students finish their first quarter of the school year with fewer absences and deeper engagement in their education.
