Artists Reaching Out (ARO)

Artists Reaching Out is a volunteer program that brings arts education to preschool through middle school students in the Morningside Heights/Harlem community with limited opportunities. Volunteers foster positive mentoring relationships and cultivate young talent in drama, music, visual art, creative writing, and dance. ARO seeks to foster diversity and inclusion in the arts with Columbia students both inside and outside of the classroom.

There is no need to be an artist or have teaching experience to join us. Everyone is welcome!
