We strive to recruit, hire and collaborate with people from diverse backgrounds and worldviews, as this equips us to meet the needs of the diverse young people we meet. While 95% of our students identify as students of color and 100% are eligible for free and/or reduced lunch, their traditional teachers do not typically match their racial and economic identities. Our partner artists come from the same backgrounds as our students, and 80% identify as persons of color.
