Organizations throughout the state help schools access the AIE residency Grant Program. Young Audiences New Jersey & Eastern Pennsylvania manages the AIE program statewide.
Regional partners manage residencies in their regions, helping schools connect AIE Residencies with other programs in their school and communities. Currently, Appel Farm Arts & Music Center is a regional partner. Education staff at Young Audiences NJ & Eastern PA and Appel Farm work with schools and teaching artists to help support AIE Residencies - from the inital application through to the culminating event. Experienced partners from these organizations provide guidance, help, and best practices while also helping the steering committee to reach the residencies' planned goals and outcomes.
