What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
is the hands-on, long term, visible results of their work with New York City schools and, particularly, their amazing success with the handicapped and learning disabled students and young adults.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
educated, talented, dedicated and highly motivated
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
provide really innovative, creative program design, training, and management leadership to other arts-in- education nonprofits
