Field Trips for Title 1 Schools

Act One field trips for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year have been cancelled by our arts partners due to COVID-19 restrictions and school closures. We’re still working for you to plan next year’s field trips, so don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.


Act One partners with Title 1 schools in Metropolitan Phoenix and Metropolitan Tucson as well as nearby areas that have limited educational arts field trip opportunities. Act One coordinates the field trips with educators/schools/districts and the arts organizations, handling reservations and paying admission costs to the arts venues; coordinating and paying for transportation via district buses or contracted bus services; providing teaching materials to help prepare for the field trip; and providing books when they complement the field trip. Schools are responsible for a $1 program partnership fee per participant.

In the 2018-19 school year, Act One brought more than 43,000 K-12 grade students from Title 1 schools on more than 88 performance field trips and nearly 170 museum field trips in the Phoenix and Tucson areas. Capacity for the 2019-20 school year tops 50,000.

Quotation Mark

“I have a class of students with Autism who come from low SES homes. I know that was a rare and deeply enriching experience for my kiddos. Live instruments, singing, audience engagement/ participation, exposure to their own culture in a way that they most likely have never experienced before.”

Students attended Act One field trips last year

Thanks to the generosity of donors, Act One was able to bring 16% more students on arts field trips in 2018-19 than the prior year. We will have capacity to bring more than 50,000 students in 2019-20.
