Youth & Education
P.S. ARTS establishes arts education programs in underserved Los Angeles public schools to empower and encourage young children.
Turnaround Arts: California is reimagining teaching and learning by creating a coalition of schools, arts organizations, and community members using the arts to create joyful, equitable, and inclusive learning environments where all students have the opportunity to thrive and succeed. The organization helps to connect partner schools with regional arts networks, including community arts organizations, teaching artists, arts and cultural institutions, performance venues, professional learning experts, and higher-education professionals in order to build community support systems that lead to sustainable change.
Investment in the arts can promote school growth, such as positive trends in test scores and attendance rates. Today, Turnaround Arts: California serves 14,000 students in 23 public elementary and middle schools across 15 school districts statewide, including urban, suburban, and rural communities. The California affiliate works with nearly one-third of the 84 participating schools nationwide and involves more than 50 community and arts organizations.
