Arts to Grow (ATG) is a nonprofit organization that collaborates withNew York City metro area public schools and community organizations to provide music, visual arts, theater, dance and literary programs to underserved urban youth. Through our powerful model for learning through the arts, we help each child experience life-changing personal success. They discover joy in learning, become self-motivated, feel valued and gain self-confidence and skills necessary to look beyond the limitations of their environment and become leaders now and in the future.

Program partners are located in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Newark and Hoboken, NJ. 50 more schools and community organizations are on a waiting list. ATG has offered 74 high quality custom programs to over 1600 children ages 5-22. 390 kids were served during the 2010-2011 school year.
