PAK’s Mission of Education 

Facilitators: Claire Machosky and Marit Majeske

Performing Arts for Kids, also known as PAK, is a non-profit organization that works exclusively with the Hylton Performing Arts Center to provide a rich cultural repertoire for school age children. Since 2013, PAK has supported programming at the Hylton for over 30,000 students from the public schools of Prince William County and the cities of Manassas and Manassas Park. This is an opportunity to learn about the work of the Hylton Education Committee and to share your ideas that will contribute to the continued success of kids and the arts in Prince William County. The facilitators will be joined by other staff and community representatives for this interactive program.
