92Y Is A Proud Recipient Of Award From The MetLife Foundation Partners in Arts Education


92nd Street Y is one of 12 nonprofit organizations selected to receive a Partners in Arts Education grant from the MetLife Foundation to provide sustained, quality arts instruction to nearly 2,000 students during the 2011–2012 school year—through its Schools Partnership Program.

Since 1990, 92Y’s Educational Outreach Programs in the Arts have served over 125,000 students from 50 schools. In 2010, 92Y, in consortium with other leading NYC arts education service providers, was chosen by the U.S. Department of Education Investing in Innovation Fund to create an assessment framework for visual and performing arts.

The grant from the MetLife Foundation will support 92Y’s Schools Partnership Program, which partners with public schools that have no arts curriculum to provide nearly 2,000 students instruction in ceramics, dance, music, musical theatre, theatre, chorus, guitar and xylophone. 92Y Teaching Artists work with classroom teachers, administrators and arts specialists to link the arts with the school’s core curriculum. This intensive and hands-on partnership provides another avenue, in addition to regular academics, to achieve success and transferable skills (e.g. problem solving, analytical thinking, concentration).

The MetLife Foundation Partners in Arts Education Program is funded by MetLife Foundation and administered by the National Guild for Community Arts Education.

In conjunction with the new campaign, we’ve got lots of fun facts to share with you. We will be doing that on a daily basis, here on the 92Y Blog and on Twitter, Tumblr and Facebook!

Here’s today’s fun fact: There are more than 250 beehives in Manhattan. And as of last year, beekeepers in Manhattan are no longer outlaws!

During Rosh Hashanah, it is customary to eat apples and challah dipped in honey, a symbol of the sweetness we hope to enjoy during the coming year. Enjoy honey, apples and Rosh Hashanah at 92Y and 92YTribeca.
