Become a partner in a child’s success!
YAV provides arts-integrated educational programs that enhance student learning both in the arts and in core curriculum subjects by using the arts-integrated techniques. By working in partnership with educators, YAV artists help students utilize arts strategies to demonstrate learning. Neuroscience findings demonstrate that sustained learning in the arts correlates with higher achievement in both math and reading, and promotes creativity, social development, personality adjustment, and self-worth. Likewise, a strong correlation has been found between lack of artistic exposure, low college enrollment, limited vocational opportunities, and low civic engagement.
Your support makes you a partner in preparing today’s students to become tomorrow’s leaders. Every gift increases opportunities for students to participate in arts-based learning that teaches creativity, critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and citizenship.
