Who they serve

Together our members serve thousands of students from DC Public Schools and Public Charter Schools to gain access to dance, literary arts, music, visual arts, media arts, and other arts and humanities disciplines.  More specifically our members aim to provide access to arts and humanities education resources to students and teachers who would not otherwise have access.

See the Member Mapping Project for more information.
