This year, HeadsUp has expanded programs, choices, and equity funding! We’ve partnered with Youth In Arts, the district, and our elementary PTA/Os to design and fund a program responsive to the priorities and needs of each school—providing weekly arts enrichment for every TK-5 student. The 30 weeks of instruction include two disciplines of each site’s choosing, all necessary supplies, fall and spring culminating events, and a family art workshop. Beyond this new program, we continue to fund middle-school enrichment, student wellness, grants to teachers, and college access across SRCS.

We are pleased to deepen the partnership with Youth in Arts to provide elementary enrichment. The mission of Youth in Arts aligns perfectly with that of HeadsUp; Youth in Arts builds visual and performing arts skills through innovative and in-depth programs that foster confidence, compassion, and resilience in students of all abilities. They develop capacity among educators and teaching artists, advocate for equitable access to arts education, and offer opportunities for youth to share their creative voices.
