Background
Arts for Learning Connecticut was established in 1979 as one of the state chapters and affiliates of Young Audiences, Inc. the largest not-for-profit, educational arts organization in the country.  Now one of 33 chapters nationwide, AFLCT has grown to be the tenth largest chapter in the nation.  AFLCT has dedicated itself for over 35 years to the principle that the arts play a demonstrable role in the development of the whole person.  As Connecticut's VSA Affiliate, AFLCT's  VSA work is guided by the principles that every young person with a disability deserves access to high quality arts learning experiences and that all children, youth and adults with disabilities should have complete access to cultural facilities and activities. AFLCT serves more than 86% of the 169 cities and towns in Connecticut, reaching 350,000 children, teachers and families each year.  AFLCT builds on the arts experiences in K-12 schools, libraries, municipal agencies, museums, community centers, pre- and after-school programs, pediatric hospitals and youth correctional facilities to provide a continuum of arts programming. Young people, families and people of all ages and abilities  benefit from their involvement in an intereactive, multi-disciplinary arts experience that transforms the public's understanding of the value of the arts as an active and natural part of everyone's life.

CEO Statement

For the past 20 years, I have been associated with  Arts for Learning Connecticut.  I have witnessed tremendous growth in our programming statewide and in the depth of educational impact that arts programming has on children, teachers and families and people of all abilities.  We have developed lifelong learning programs for our elder learners and developed professional training for our master teaching artists as well as entered into partnerships with schools to embed artists in their daily curriculum. 

AFLCT is unique because it brings professional artists together with children, teachers and families so that learning takes place around the state in numerous locations. AFLCT is the only organization in the state that is devoted solely to arts and education. Our artists reach children in 86% of the towns and cities in Connecticut annually impacting over 350,000 children.  The past years have been difficult ones as arts education funding has been slashed in our schools, making it all the more imperative that we aggressively seek funding and partnerships to insure that our programming continues in schools and communities.

Our roster is a diverse group of teaching artists that are artistically excellent who have all created programming-performances, workshops and residencies that incorporate core curriculum standards in literacy, math, social studies and science.  Our artists represent all the arts disciplines-music, dance, theatre, storytelling, literary and visual arts.

 

Board Chair Statement
My first five minutes witnessing a teaching artist interact with a child convinced me:  Arts for Learning Connecticut programs transform lives.  When a teaching artist has connected with a student, the look of acknowledgement and appreciation of the power of the arts as learning tool is immediately evident.  AFLCT's gifted artists convey the importance of the arts in shaping our perspective on the world.
 
With a growing number of programs tailored for adults as well as children, Arts for Learning Connecticut is truly the premier organization in CT for providing robust arts education programs for the public.  Our distinguished roster of teaching and performing artists translate their talents into valuable and influential teaching methods that unleash the creativity that dwells within us all.  That's just the first step.  To ensure that the arts remain integrated into the lives of those touched by the organization, AFLCT is the leading expert for training teachers and community leaders on how to integrate the arts into their curriculum.
 
For almost 35 years, AFLCT has built a reputation as a valued community partner to enhance education through the arts for people of all ages.  Your support is vital in ensuring that AFLCT can continue its important mission of supporting the arts as a precious discipline that fosters creativity and lifelong learning.

AFLCT is dedicated to creating a society where all people with disabilities learn through, participate in, and enjoy the arts. Every young person with a disability deserves access to high quality arts learning experiences.  All artists in schools and arts educators should be prepared to include students with disabilities in their instruction.  All children, youth and adults with disabilities should have complete access to cultural facilities and activities.  All individuals with disabilities who aspire to careers in the arts should have the opportunity to develop appropriate skills. Each year AFLCT strives to continue partnerships and collaborations while developing new ones throughout the state.

The Studio Jams project, for young adults diagnosed with mental illness, in collaboration with the Community Mental Health Center in New Haven has been very successful.  This program allows young people  to select their art form for in-depth study with professional artists to develop their skills as an artist.  We are now moving into year three of this program.
Description
The Arts for Learning Initiative  - core arts learning - connects multiple arts disciplines to national core standards and integrates them into arts performances, workshops and residencies. The arts open up multiple pathways to learning in every curricular area because it provides multiple forms of expression for all learning styles.  The strength of this integration directly corresponds to teachers' abilities to communicate curriculum content using the arts in their classroom. AFLCT uses the Core Signature Services developed by YA national where each participant will: experience the art form, understand the art form, create the art form, and connect the learning to other areas of study and to their life and world. These are elements that are present in all AFLCT programs to maximize student learning and impact 21st century learning skills. This is vital to providing a strong framework for AFLCT programs and has enabled AFLCT artists to work with teachers and students effectively.

With increasing demand from Title I schools (particularly pre-and primary) AFLCT is expanding partnerships with parent groups to provide additional programming in and out of school.  AFLCT's involvement with the CT Afterschool Network reflects numerous partnerships with a variety of organizations providing after-school programs in the New Haven area. Local PTAs/PTOs have consistently provided funding to bring AFLCT programs into schools. For family programming, AFLCT is the "go to" organization hroughout the State of CT.

Principals/teachers/parents are consistently telling AFLCT that additional programs that provide literacy activivities for the entire family are critical in CT schools.  As part of our strategic initiatives, AFLCT is providing more programming to Title I schools and has a much higher presence in these schools than ever before.  All studies show that parental involvement is key for student success.  AFLCT collaborations with schools have and are increasingly in demand, providing even greater opportunities for parents to be involved in their child's learning as "their child's first teacher".

Evaluations of programs by parents/children/artists has been a successful tool for family programming's changing needs. AFLCT has a high percentage of fathers participating in our PACK programs as a response to the kind of programming that men would enjoy with their children.  From the evaluations it has been determined that there is a strong demand for multi-cultural programming, particicularly in communities that are lacking diversity and schools are demanding additional programs that can encourage more  involvement from parents. 
Examples of Program SuccessHelpOrganization's site specific examples of changes in clients' behaviors or testimonies of client's changes to demonstrate program success.
The Keefe Center Family and Communities for Kids (PACK) program  in Hamden has been a success story for 7 years.  Attendance averages 50-100 multi-age famiy members for our 4-6 week program with a high percentage of fathers participating with their families.  This model has expanded into other communities as funding allows. Each program utilizes family programming using the signature core services where participants experience the art form, understand the art form, create the art form, and connect the learning to other areas of their life and world.

Comments
CEO Comments
AFLCT is poised to enter new market and programming areas and have not added new staff members in many years. There is a need to better manage the AFLCT areas of programing and customer service. Work study students and volunteers have been able to support this position in the past; however, a staff position to manage these coordinators is becoming self evident. Keeping up with changing technology to keep the organization running efficiently is always a challenge. There is the simple need of desktop computers to software systems that would integrate the needs of all departments.  In general,  AFLCT needs the internal resources and operating support to make the operations of educating through the arts flawless throughout the state..
 
In the area of VSA - arts for all ages and all abilities, the federal dollars have been cut to include services only for children with disabilities.  Therefore, the need for financial support to continue programs for people of ALL ages with disabilities is great.
