San Francisco Opera Guild believes the life lessons drawn from creative expression are the foundation of confidence and integrity. Since 1939, we have funded and developed award-winning outreach and education programs that extend the impact of opera, bringing it center stage in the life of the community. San Francisco Opera Guild's education fund ensures the continuation of educational programs that help students find their voice. Every year, more than 50,000 students in nearly 200 schools throughout Northern California get the benefits of arts education, as only opera can give them.
Our programs are organized into four streams to help teachers choose the programs that are right for their students and curriculum. Each program is designed to show students a new way to learn about the world and participate in it.
