Changing the Odds Pathway to Literacy for Kids Program

2020 – 2025

BRINGING THE ARTS INTO DAILY LEARNING

Windsor Endowment for the Arts has partnered with Arts Can Teach and the Greater Essex County District School Board launching a five-year Changing the Odds Pathway to Literacy for Kids programThis vital initiative will provide urgently needed funds to support the educational, social and emotional needs of our region’s most vulnerable children.

The program funded by WEA and delivered by Arts Can Teach will reach the areas of greatest need with the highest levels of child poverty: the downtown area, west Windsor and Leamington.

Changing the Odds Pathway to Literacy for Kids, an interdisciplinary arts program, will focus on literacy for English language learners at two schools of highest need using Drama and Dance to boost language learning and understanding.  Arts Can Teach will provide skilled artist educators to partner with public school teachers for the high-calibre delivery of engaging, arts-integrated programs beginning in Kindergarten.

Arts Can Teach will also address literacy in STEAM subjects, grades 1- 8 at all schools in need, integrating Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math to incorporate creative thinking and applied arts in real situations.

Will you support our dream where children, artists and community benefit from arts-infused activities that support day-to-day learning and wellness?

“The arts are indispensable in promoting healing, healthy living and well being
among individuals and communities particularly those confronted by social and economic duress.” −Michaelle Jean, former Governor General of Canada
