Providing training in the arts for classroom teachers, school administrators, teaching artists and community partners.
In The Professional Development Institute, educators and administrators, particularly those in high-poverty schools, learn how to build bridges between the arts and academic subjects. Program participants learn how to engage students in their own learning, enhancing each student's ability to achieve academic and personal success.

“I had let time restrictions and mandates close my thinking. I now feel much stronger about the need for the arts. I can see new connections between subjects. I’m getting more of a sense of hope.”
