"ETA has been an essential thought partner for our small school. As a first-time principal, I have benefited greatly from their guidance. ETA's coaching has made it possible for me to envision how the arts can be alive and well in our school for many years to come."

37 Partner Schools in 2 cities impacting over 20,000 students
"Through ETA's Apprenticeship Program, I made many special mentors and formed a second family. I felt safe, and I felt as if I mattered. My apprenticeship helped me develop the skills that got me into film school for college, and it made me realize that I do have a voice and the means to tell my story."
- Paul-Ann, The Bronx

"I loved ETA's Apprenticeship Program! Working with professionals around really inspired me, because their work ethic is so strong.

more than $500,000 spent every year directly on schools
"Sometimes the funding is not there in a public school to purchase costumes, to hire choreographers, or to get musical instruments repaired. We have gained access to so many different resources because of ETA. Since we started working with them, a lot has changed for our students."
