For more than 50 years, Youth in Arts has existed to achieve a seemingly simple thing: to bring quality arts education to students of ALL backgrounds and abilities. But our work is about so much more. It is about whole person development, identity, voice, discovery, imagination, and the freedom derived from access to creativity and art-making. Youth in Arts (YIA) is an education nonprofit founded in 1970 by local arts advocates dismayed by diminishing arts resources available for California students. YIA builds visual and performing arts skills through innovative and in-depth programs that foster confidence, compassion and resilience in students. We develop capacity among educators and teaching artists through intentional support efforts, advocate for equitable access to arts education and offer opportunities for young people to share their creative voices in their communities. Through direct education in school partnerships as well as through local and national advocacy, our programs change the lives of thousands in- and around San Francisco’s North Bay. YIA insists that access to a creative life is a right for all students.
