All youth and families in our programs are provided with free passes to museums, the chance to meet and learn from professional artists, and/or the opportunity to attend a live theater, music, or dance performance.

Examples of Cultural Enrichment in action include the interactive performances that cap off Free Arts Days, the museum passes received by all PACT Program and Arts Mentoring Program participants, and the extra special events and workshops led by our artist supporters, all of which boost arts engagement across our programs.
