ESSA Title Funding

We know that securing funding for high-quality arts programming is a challenge for many schools — but we also know just how vital the arts are to a 21st century education. By engaging and empowering young people, TIGER teaches them prosocial skills, the importance of inclusion and respect, and how to become resilient. TIGER performances and workshops emphasize the skills we know youth need to succeed — in the classroom, in their communities, and in life.

Luckily, there is a growing body of research and funding opportunities to support what we know about the impact of the arts on youth development! We encourage you to use these guidance documents to leverage the fiscal resources available to your school and community, thus ensuring that TIGER is part your students’ educational experience.
