To learn about the Avalon Foundation's Young Audiences Program watch the video below:
The Avalon Foundation created its Young Audiences Outreach Program to ensure that children throughout Talbot County cultivate a lifelong relationship with the arts. The programs provides high quality performances in a theatre setting at no cost to the schools or students and in depth curriculum tools and artist residencies to spark the creative fire in the children of our community. Last year every 2nd, 4th, 6th, 7th & 8th grader in Talbot County Public Schools attended a performance. In addition, 3 groups of Easton Elementary 2nd graders and all Easton Middle School band students received residencies. It is the goal of the Young Audiences Outreach Program to reach every child in every grade. Your support can make that possible.
Many of the 4,495 students who currently attend Talbot County Public Schools live with very limited resources. Easton Elementary, as the closest example to the Avalon, has 1,058 students, 73% of whom are minority students, 12% receive special English as a second language services and roughly 49% live below the poverty line. These students would not experience performance art in a theatre setting without this type of program.
