These members are among 125 New York State organizations and schools selected from 450 proposals to receive these grants. The purpose of the grants is to create or expand community learning centers that provide academic enrichment and youth development opportunities for students who attend schools that serve a high percentage of low-income families.

About Educational Alliance Art School
The Educational Alliance is an original settlement set up in the 1890's to help east European immigrants settle in the United States. The founders felt in this democratic society that the poor and immigrants should have access to the arts. Art classes were first offered in 1895. The aim was to morally uplift the students through developing their aesthetic standards. The young immigrants' teenagers who took classes grew up to be leading social realists and abstract painters of the 20th century.

Our largest partnership with schools is currently in New York City where we work with 23 schools and over 40 classrooms grades 4 through 12.
