Arts For All is such a great organization. As a board member, I spend a lot of unpaid hours working to help AFA succeed. Even though it takes up so much of my time, I feel like it is completely worth it. To know that AFA is out there, helping kids discover the arts for the first time is so fulfilling. I'm glad that Arts For All exists in the world and I hope it continues to thrive for many years.

Ways to make it better...

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

expand the budget! If we had more money, we could bring more programming out to the kids.

Arts For All has changed my life. The work that Arts For All does is so amazing and fulfilling . I love knowing that we are helping kids express themselves in ways that they would not have the opportunity to otherwise. Each year, I put on a play with kids who have never been onstage before. It's so cool to watch them gain confidence as they rehearse and how excited they are to perform for the first time. Arts For All helps kids all over New York City, but it also impacts me in ways I never expected. It's the best!

About 7 years ago, I was dispatched by Arts for All to the Incarnation Children's Center to perform a Disney concert for HIV positive kids - especially one who had a birthday that day. The birthday boy was so excited - he grabbed my microphone at one point and started singing himself. About five years ago, I taught a Shakespeare workshop to a group of kids at the Polo Grounds community center in Harlem. Their first exposure to the bard yielded an amazing thing - they all memorized the line , "Now is the winter of our discontent made glorious summer by this Son of York." A little girl gave one of the most convincing readings of the line I've ever heard. At PS 14 in Harlem, the principal was so enthusiastic about his third-graders performing the first scene from Hamlet that he agreed to play the ghost in the scene. The kids loved it! These are just a few of my favorite memories from teaching AFA workshops, and some of the reasons why I now work so hard on the board of AFA - kids need us to expose them to theater, and to all art!!!

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

make sure every children's institution, school or otherwise, had art programming.
