AHFES Program Catalogue

Each year the Arts and Humanities for Every Student program has three different opportunities for schools to register for programs at no cost: Fall, Winter, and Spring. School selection is determined through an equitable lottery model to ensure schools in every ward are receiving equitable access to arts and humanities experiences. DC Public and Public Charter School partners are eligible to participate in the AHFES lotteries after they have returned their school partnership agreement and attended an orientation. More information can be found here, or by contacting Clarissa Heartsfield at Clarissa@DCCollaborative.org

DC Collaborative Members can find out more about how to participate in AHFES here, or by contacting Tres@DCCollaborative.org.
