Another major project of The Contemporaries, begun in 1974, was the Arts-in-Education program. It is dedicated to giving children of the community a broad educational experience in the arts, culture and humanities. This program now consists of professional touring theatrical programs that range from musical to dramatic. These programs reach more than 14,000 K-8 students annually at 56 performances during school days. The Contemporaries serve as docents by ushering students from their bus to their designated seating area and then ushering them safely back to their bus after the show.
