Music and cultural arts are a vital part of developing and maintaining healthy communities. The LEAF model focuses on strengthening communities both locally through LEAF Schools & Streets, and globally through LEAF International with art forms that uplift and empower.

LEAF dreams of deepening our connection to the communities we serve by establishing sustainable practices such as investing in LEAF Teaching Artists; establishing community liaisons; fostering cultural exchanges locally for LEAF International students and much, much more!
Giving back to our community is a powerful vehicle for change and spreads the spirit of LEAF throughout the world. By supporting LEAF, you are co-creating transformative experiences rooted in arts and culture, which generate boundless possibilities.
