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. We’ve currently booked more than 50,000 students and chaperones on arts field trips for the 2019-20 school year.

Quotation Mark

“Act One occupies a unique space at the intersection of arts and education by providing access to the arts for Title 1 kids who could not otherwise attend these programs … The bottom line for me is it’s all about equity. I and my children were fortunate to be able to experience the arts as part of our educational development. I want all children to have the same opportunities.”

— Lois Savage, Former Act One Board President
