Back to School with YAV!
School is back in session and we are ready to inspire and motivate students IN and THROUGH the arts! Looking to inspire your students this school year, schedule a YAV arts program. You can choose from a performance for the whole school, workshops for individual grade levels and/or classes or long-term residencies.
Call Michelle Newcomb, School Relationship Coordinator at 757.961.3737 today!
Welcome Michelle Newcomb, School Relationship Coordinator, to YAV!
Michelle started with Young Audiences as a volunteer in 2014 because she fell in love with what our organization does, teach children through the arts. As a gifted student herself, her fondest memories are learning through entertaining education.
Engaging students in their education is something she is passionate about, just ask her son. From using stickers for math homework to making a bird house to demonstrate shapes; she’s done most, if not all, of the fun learning she can think of to make her son fall in love with education.
Professionally, she has done everything from selling insurance and cars to being a team leader for a well-known rental car company. Not willing to only be a part of a process, she has always made it her business to know all parts of the process, leading her to several promotions from one department to another, learning as much about the business before choosing to expand her wings further. Landing with Young Audiences of Virginia, she happily anticipates settling in and learning all aspects of the organization – and enjoying every minute of it!
