If you are working on Goal #1:

Is your County, District, or School listed as having NO ARTS ED?

Sample Outreach Language:

This is an e-mail format, but you can adapt it for phone call or in-person outreach.

Hello [Name of Contact],

I hope you are doing well today.

I am writing to you as an Arts Education Champion for [County, District, and/or School]. 

According to New Jersey State data, the following schools in our area have no access to required Arts Education:

[PUT THE SCHOOLS FROM THE LIST HERE. You can sort the list and then copy and paste into your e-mail.]

Do you know if this data is correct? 

If not, please let me know. I can help transmit that information to the NJ Arts Ed Now & for ALL! campaign so they can help document it.

If the data is true, what can we do to get the required arts education programming in our [County, District, and/or School]? I am an eager advocate for arts education for our youth.

Youth are the future and they need all the support they can get right now. Arts education changes youth lives for the better by helping them connect to their identity, agency, and a sense of belonging. This supports their overall mental, physical, and social health. It gives them a foundation for the skills they need to succeed. It helps them change their own world and make our world better for the future.

I look forward to hearing from you and working with you to get arts education in our [County, District, and/or School].
