We at Mars Hill CDC work with youth from north Philadelphia (9th Lehigh Avenue and 10th and Wallace areas), ages 5 thru 13. We are open to everyone and our group is predominantly African American. Art Reach has been a wonderful partner this year providing many opportunities for our youth to experience arts and culture that they would not have otherwise. The young people had a great time this holiday season attending performances in and around Philadelphia viewing the Nutcracker, Peter Pan and Oliver. Most recently we had a great time at the orchestral performance accompanying the Wizard of Oz. Thank you Art Reach for making the arts available to the youth of the Mars Hill CDC.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

providing exciting cultural and educational opportunities for disadvantabed youth in north Philadelphia.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

provide more accessible informaton about Art Reach in and around the Philadelphia area.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The opportunities have been in the Philadelphia area so our participants have gotten a chance to see different parts of Philadelphia and the surrounding counties.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

energetic and very helpful in making sure that the youth enjoyed the performances.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand the number of activities it was able to sponsor and more youth would have opportnities to experience arts and culture usually unavailable to them.

Ways to make it better...

more organizations servicing inner city youth knew about their program.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

suring up their donor base.

One thing I'd also say is that...

In spite of the economic downturn Art Reach has continued to prvide quality cultural and arts experiences through their programs.

The staff is always helpful! The in-house performances have been outstanding. The ticketing program is a great way to link the arts to individuals and groups that benefit tremendously.

I was matched with Art-Reach about two years ago through a volunteer matching website - looking for something arts-related in the Philadelphia area. All of my interaction with Art-Reach has exceeded my expectations. The staff are exemplary in their dedication to under-served people who need assistance getting connected to the arts. Art-Reach staff are compassionate, resourceful and creative; they are very appreciative of their volunteers. As a Volunteer Ambassador I have been priviledged to serve at many events. I have seen first-hand the impact that cultural experiences have on the attendees. I am humbled and honored to be able to serve. Art-Reach provides a vital, priceless service.

Art-reach has been the best thing to my job. I have had the oppurnity to get everyone out in the community and see different things they never experienced before. The best thing is the expression on there faces and how wonderful it makes them feel. I have taken people to concerts and shows who have never been to one before. I'm very grateful for being connected to Art-Reach to help me better serve the people I serve. Art-Reach Customer Service is the BEST. This Is A WONDERFUL ORGANIZATION!!

I occasionally blog for Art-Reach, and I seriously have nothing but praise for what this organization does in our great city - bringing the arts to people who have been traditionally marginalized in our community, because of disability, race, economic status, etc. I wish I was independently wealthy so I could help fund Art-Reach, and not just humbly volunteer once in a while.

I found Art-Reach about a year ago and wish that I had found it earlier. As a Special Projects ambassador and writer for "Share the Experience" (the Art-Reach blog), I have had the opportunity to sit in on rehearsals for ASL interpreted performances and to speak with pioneering ballet company creative directors. I leave every interview feeling enriched and grateful to be a part of this organization. Not to mention, the people running it are some of the most warm and genuine I've met.
