Arts

Jump Street provides arts education programs in a safe and encouraging atmosphere where students from diverse backgrounds have what is very often their first experience with various art forms and cultures. We build unique partnerships that allow foundations, government agencies, nongovernmental organizations, and schools, to use the arts to facilitate their needs.

Arts in Education

Arts in Education (AIE) places exceptional professional artists from the visual, performing, media and literary arts in educational settings for in-depth residencies. Teachers/agencies select and collaborate with qualified artists who conduct Artist Residencies – experiences that will integrate arts into the teacher’s core curriculum.

Jump Street is an Arts in Education Partner with Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. Jump Street is expanding the role of the arts in classrooms and community centers in Cumberland, Dauphin, and Schuylkill Counties.

Arts in education began as a National Endowment of the Arts initiative for state arts councils in the late 1970s. The PA Council on the Arts introduced its innovative decentralized model and as a result, the entire state, not just the metro-centers, has AIE Partner support to help schools redefine, energize and/or expand arts education. Pennsylvania has earned a series of awards and honors for arts in education partnerships. In July 2012, Jump Street was named as Pennsylvania’s thirteenth AIE partner.

and™ magazine

and™ stands for A New Diversion and that’s been our goal since 2005. As an arts and healthy lifestyles magazine, the magazine entertains & informs students with healthy, positive and entertaining stories.

and™ magazine is the only teen publication in Central Pennsylvania written by teens for teens. Students write the articles, contribute photography and assist with graphic design and layout.It is freely distributed to all middle and high schools in Dauphin, Cumberland, Lebanon, Perry and Northern York Counties, organizations and retail establishments.

The Gift of Music

Jump Street created the Gift of Music program to combat the lack of resources available to schools and organizations to be able to provide music training to their students. Even with the resources available, many students cannot afford the cost of buying or renting an instrument to participate. This is where the Gift of Music comes in.

Since 2001, Gift of Music has collected and distributed hundreds of instruments in the Capital Region. Additionally, Jump Street has incubated the Gift of Music in three other cities: Philadelphia, Allentown and Lancaster. In all, the four sites have supplied thousands of instruments to youth throughout Pennsylvania.

Peace Wall

Through a comprehensive blend of creativity, education, and new technology, Photography for Kids seeks to connect and inspire young people to explore, embrace, and experience the world through the enjoyment of photography.   The Bigshot Photograph Workshop gives youth a unique opportunity to build their own camera, learn the science and engineering of how the camera works, and express their own creativity.
