“It’s such a thrill working with Turnaround Arts… to be part of bringing these kids such rich creative experiences that they all deserve, but might never get otherwise. I have seen firsthand how excited these kids are to learn through the arts, to drum or dance every day, to be practicing math through the visual arts. It’s just so clear how much they are learning, how much their confidence is growing. I can’t wait to get to work.”
