We are seeking experts who can help us understand our different audiences and create targeted messaging to appeal to these groups. We are also looking to reach out to new potential partners and donors who are mission-aligned and have a passion for the arts, opera, and/or education. A marketing professional could ideally help us understand new channels to reach out to donors and how best to appeal to them, what channels we are underutilizing and where our efforts might not be yielding the best returns.
Time In has been in existence for 12 years and in order to ensure sustainability of programming into the future, we believe it is important to raise the profile of our organization to bring in more foundations and donors who are willing to make bigger grants so that we can grow as an organization. Hi!Art, the for-profit arts program that Time In is a replica of, garnered lots of press attention and was ranked Best of New York. We need Time In to have that same brand recognition in order to foster a strong base of funders.
The Time In Children's Arts Initiative will transform the lives and learning of chronically disadvantaged public school children, ensuring that equality, opportunity and access - to the arts and through the arts - become staples of public education.
The Time In Children's Arts Initiative has worked, since 2006, to transform the lives and learning of New York City's youngest and most at-risk public school children. An awardee of the renowned Maxine Greene Foundation for its groundbreaking work in arts-education, supported by the New York Community Trust and The Catalog for Giving, Time In's tripartite aesthetic, intellectual and social-emotional programming - provides a powerful antidote to the debilitating inequities that children living in high-risk, chronically impoverished communities struggle with daily. An ongoing part of the normal school day for hundreds of New York's most disadvantaged public elementary school children TimeIn recreates the Best of NY, HiArt! program, which for 20 years has served the children of some of the world's most privileged families -- from David Bowie and Hugh Jackman to Rupert Murdoch and Mort Zuckerman - as well as in residencies at The Hollingworth Center for Gifted Education (Teacher's College), and the Speyer Legacy School for exceptionally gifted children.
Beginning with 30 kindergarteners from Harlem's failing Family Academy in 2006, TimeIn was founded on the belief that life-long learners and leaders emerge not from punitive time outs, but from effective participation in the real world. Every child, regardless of socio-economic background is entitled to a thoughtfully crafted, arts-enriched education in which each individual child's talents and needs are recognized, and the support for greater creativity, intelligence, self-esteem and a brighter, better future is more than just a promise.
