Description & History

MISSION: The mission of Sports & Arts in Schools Foundation is to help bridge the opportunity gap among underserved students by providing programs designed to improve academic performance, health and wellness, self-confidence, character and attitudes for success in life.

OVERVIEW: Students from well-to-do families have every advantage. Their private schools provide mentors, tutors, offer vibrant arts programs, with visits to the Met and MOMA, and excellent student orchestras. But in our Public Schools - these programs don’t exist, and the majority of our students’ families live at or below the poverty level. We will be there for students from under-resourced communities who start school without any of the tools they need to succeed. We will be their advantage.  We will be their edge, by providing after-school programs that allow students to boost their academics, discover the joy of arts and music, and play sports. All in a safe, nurturing environment. Programs that not only develop mind and body but also the potential to go further in life and break down barriers. We’ll be there to give these students the edge they need to succeed/compete in school and in life.
