Our Mission is Simple

Arts Bridging the Gap highlights the voices, experiences, and self-expression of youth from underserved communities through immersive arts programs. We seek to cultivate the skills, mindsets, and connections that will allow youth to be their best and fullest selves, as individuals and as members of diverse, thriving communities.


Our Programs

Arts Bridging the Gap creates arts programs to support children’s cognitive development and cultivate creative problem-solving skills prized by employers. Our programs increase both high school and college graduation rates among students from low socioeconomic backgrounds.
