The Arts for Healing and Justice Network (AHJN) is an interdisciplinary collaborative that provides exceptional arts programming in order to build resiliency and wellness, eliminate recidivism, and transform the juvenile justice system.
Second largest in the nation, the Los Angeles Unified School District serves over 600,000 students in kindergarten through twelfth grade at over 1,000 school. The District also has over 200 independently-operated public charter schools, authorized by the Los Angeles Unified Board of Education. Embracing our diversity to educate LA’s youth, ensure academic achievement and empower tomorrow’s leaders.
An arts education steward by a combination of classroom teachers, arts teachers, parents and a collaborative arts community guarantees student access to a world of creative thinking, learning and growing. Through our Arts Community Network, LAUSD supports organizations that enhance our students’ arts education experience. When we send professional teaching artists directly into the classroom, it transforms the learning environment. When students visit a museum, theatre, concert hall, or cultural institutions, they deepen their understanding of our city and our world.
The Los Angeles County Probation Department (LACPD) is currently the largest probation services agency in the United States.
The Partnerships for Los Angeles Schools is one of the largest, in-district public school transformation organizations in the United States. We are a non-profit managing 18 LA Unified schools serving approximately 14,000 students, making them about as large as the Santa Monica Malibu Unified School District.
We are deeply grateful to our funders for their generous support. Their contributions make theatre arts education accessible to youth artists throughout Los Angeles County.
