Overview
Performing Arts Workshop delivers arts education programs to schools in San Francisco. . The Workshop's methodology teaches K-12 students through its residency programs, reaching 10,000 young people in public schools, after-school programs, and community centers. Performing Arts Workshop is a leader in arts education advocacy and the broader education reform movement; its advocacy program uses research to influence policymakers and build grassroots coalitions to support the arts in schools and communities. Hewlett has supported the organization since 1978 with nearly $1.5 million in grants, including a 2013 GOS grant ($240/3) and a 2014 Deeper OE grant ($150/2). A third grant is being recommended for executive transition support, as Executive Director Jessica Mele resigned in July to become Program Officer at Hewlett. This grant will ensure a smooth transition and organizational stability.
