Big New Plans!
Arts education changes lives. In fact, numerous national studies show that arts education provides a major educational and achievement advantage – especially for students from marginalized communities. Yet, 80% of Oakland public school students are being denied this advantage based on their economic circumstances or race. That’s a social justice issue.
For almost 24 years, Arts for Oakland Kids has been working to remedy this injustice by providing grants for hands-on arts education in Oakland’s most financially-challenged schools. We have a bold new plan to fund weekly programs for every student who needs us – but we can’t do it without you.
