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

“This type of experience benefits all of our students because this is likely their only opportunity thus far in life to see this type of performance. With close to 100% of our students considered low-socioeconomic status, this is a very unique and rewarding experience for them!”
