Arts Partners for Learning, an initiative managed by Young Audiences, has a mission to expand access to arts education in WNY, and to improve the capacity of cultural organizations to provide quality creative learning programs. Its vision is to create opportunities for arts and cultural organizations and professional artists to work with schools and ultimately improve the educational outcomes for children. Led by a collaborative team composed of leaders from the arts, cultural, education, and philanthropic sectors of Western New York, APL aims to bring arts and cultural programs to schools that are standards-based and integrated throughout the curriculum.
