The yearly symposium brings educators, artists, donors, and local not-for-profits together to meet students and members of the community and discuss the state of arts education in the area. This provides important insight and direction for forming better, more focused programs in the future. Other education outreach includes a drive to collect instruments for students in need, grants for local programs that wish to make use of resources available at the Santa Barbara Bowl, and scholarships for college students pursuing the performing arts. Additionally, points out Kenny Slaught, the foundation supports children at Cottage Hospital as well as various in-school and after-school programs, particularly in neighborhoods feeling the concert season at the Santa Barbara Bowl. The Notes for Notes program, on a different page, connects students with free instruments and lessons. A massive volunteer committee facilitates the educational outreach projects.
