Become A Part of YAG


As an organization, we are focused on making the arts accessible to our community. We serve youth between the ages of 6-19 and have a zero participation fee policy so that anyone cast can be involved. We believe in the power of the arts to change a child’s life. If you agree, JOIN US! We are always looking for donors, volunteers, and ambassadors for the arts.
