Field Trips for Title 1 Schools
We believe that every child should have educational opportunities that include professional arts experiences. By providing field trips for students from Title 1 schools, Act One opens a world for students from low-income families. Prior to cancelling field trips due to COVID-19, we had more than 47,000 students and chaperones booked on arts field trips for the 2019-20 school year.Field Trips
