Boston College establishes ASTEP Student Chapter

Boston College_Student Chapter

ASTEP has had a longstanding relationship with Boston College, and we’re thrilled that the students there have mobilized to build a formal ASTEP Student Chapter. Led by Co-Presidents Sarah Kelley and Eliott Purcell, this chapter strives to bring awareness to issues connected to poverty through the arts while providing art outreach to children in the Boston Area.

Their leadership team has been busy organizing and recruiting volunteers since the school year started — stay tuned for updates on their project!

 

Seniors from the Walnut Hill School for the Arts raised over $1,000 for ASTEP!

Congratulations to the 2012 graduating class at Walnut Hill School for the Arts and thank you to everyone who participated in the Senior Showcase, which raised over $1,000 for ASTEP!

We have all had such a good time working closely with the ASTEP@WalnutHill student chapter, especially Co-Presidents Renee Richard and Jake Evans, both graduating seniors. We wish you all the best as you head to college and hope that we keep in touch. And we’re looking forward to getting to know the new Co-Presidents, Courtney McCain and Owen Alderson, who will take over the leadership position in the fall.

A big thank you to Meg O’Brien and Kyle Brown, members of the ASTEP community, for speaking about ASTEP at the event!
