a 2-hour music class for youth affected by the justice system
ASTEP on STAGE! partners with schools and community organizations to bring the transformative power of the arts to children and young people throughout NYC.
ASTEP Volunteer Teaching Artists deliver 1- to 2-hour workshops and quarterly “fun days”. Workshops focus on music, visual art, storytelling, poetry, and dance. Each class is carefully crafted to build our students’ social and emotional skills, to introduce them to new art forms, and to give them space to have fun and be kids!
$52 funds a two-hour music class for youth affected by the justice system that will show them they have what it takes to succeed no matter the obstacles, which is key to breaking cycles of poverty.
