Theme: Why Do the Arts Matter?

Gene Chasin, Chief Operating Officer of the Say Yes to Education Foundation, NYC, describes the Foundation’s goals of supporting urban youth through educational, mentor, health, and family support in high school, and scholarships to college, ultimately leading to economic development, rising property values and community empowerment. Successful models in Syracuse, Cambridge and Hartford are beginning to be applied in Buffalo, where a coalition of schools, colleges, foundations, and the business community are working together to research, raise funds and raise awareness of the significant opportunity.
