Any Given Child Indy

About the Program

Any Given Child Indy is a collective impact partnership with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Mayor’s Office of Indianapolis, and the Superintendent’s Office of IPS that brings diverse sectors of our community together to ensure that all 22,000 IPS K-8 students have a field trip or artist-in-school each semester, and that all 58 schools have a least one arts teacher who receives professional development by local and national arts organizations.
