Dear friends: 10 years ago I joined the board of Performing Arts Workshop. My work with them stems from my passion for education and, in particular, using it to help level the playing field for at-risk youths.
The Workshop brings arts-education programs to at-risk youths throughout the Bay Area. I have seen, first-hand, the transformational impact our programs have on kids.
We're embarking on an aggressive growth plan. I'm asking your help to support this growth by donating.
About The Workshop
We help youths develop critical thinking, creative expression, and essential learning skills through the arts. Our artist-led programs are implemented in schools, community centers, homeless shelters, and juvenile halls. 83% of the students are from low-income families. Our programs have been researched and validated over our 50 year life span.
