ChorTransform is a new ACDA initiative that employs the hallmarks of service learning in a partnership between colleges and universities, ACDA student chapters, and local choral programs in need. A defining feature of this new program is that it equips pre-service choral directors to be effective in setting outside of their usual experiences, for example urban settings, rural schools, under-served populations, under-resourced programs, and those with a lack of administrative or community support. The experience will help pre-service educators gain insight into the challenges of early career teaching.

This is the first ACDA program that has been designed especially for our student chapters. Are you a student chapter officer, advisor, or ACDA state leader and interested in learning more?
