Friends Of Education

The Long Center’s education programs annually support more than 35 high schools that collectively serve more than 60,000 students. Thousands of students and educators from seven Central Texas counties participate in our year-round training and capacity building programs each year, including approximately 30 percent from Title I schools. 

As Friends of Long Center Education (FEDU), you receive full Long Center member benefits while also allowing thousands of area students to develop the crucial building blocks that lead to success – both on and off stage.
