Ensure An Arts Rich Education Is
Non-Negotiable For Every Child
Our goal is to raise $5,000 to expand our programming outreach. Giving to KID smART means you’ll be providing a child with an arts-rich education which is proven to:
Close the achievement gap
In New Orleans, 84% of students fit the Federal definition for poverty. Low socioeconomic students (SES) with high participation in the arts have a dropout rate 5x lower than their SES counterparts.
Boost social-emotional learning
In New Orleans, children screen positive for post-traumatic stress disorder at three times the national average. The arts provide opportunities for students to engage in cycles of action and reflection which helps to manage emotions in a healthier way.
Create JOYFUL learning experiences
The arts make classrooms more vibrant, creative, and engaging places to learn!
