Suzanne Scott, Chair of theArtFund - San Antonio Wolf Trap Press conference announcement at Pre-K 4 SA South Education
theArtsFund became a National Affiliate of the Wolf Trap Institute in January of 2016.
WHAT IS A NATIONAL AFFILIATE?
Currently there are 17 Wolf Trap Institute National Affiliates throughout the country replicating Wolf Trap Institute’s model of performing arts-integrated early childhood education, allowing this valuable program to reach thousands of children, educators, and parents. National Affiliates exist under a sponsoring organization and receive professional development from Wolf Trap Education staff and Master Teaching Artists; access to Wolf Trap Institute resources and curriculum materials (including an interactive online learning community); and technical assistance and support in administering Wolf Trap Institute programming in their communities.
Each Wolf Trap Institute National Affiliate identifies a Director who oversees the program’s management and implementation. A National Affiliate must agree to implement and sustain the Wolf Trap Institute program model according to defined program standards and guidelines.
Wolf Trap’s National Affiliates across the country serve more than 55,000 children, parents, and teachers in more than 900 classrooms annually.
WHAT IS A SPONSORING ORGANIZATION?
Partner organizations that replicate the Wolf Trap Institute’s model are considered sponsoring organizations. Most often, these are arts organizations; however they may be universities, early childhood associations, or other organizations actively serving children and educators in some capacity.
The sponsoring organization must be capable of initiating, supporting, and sustaining a Wolf Trap Institute National Affiliate. Indicators of capability include:
