About Young Audiences New York
YANY’s mission is to use art, in all its forms, as a catalyst for exploring creativity and advancing
equity among youth, families, and communities in New York City. For 70 years, YANY has provided
arts education to children and youth from under-resourced schools and neighborhoods so they
can experience and create art. Our arts residencies help children explore the full scope of arts
disciplines, from playing the ukulele to learning classical Indian dance, from making pottery to
creating collage, from exploring film to acting through improv, from designing fashion to
illustrating comic books.

Most of all, YANY empowers children to express who they are and explore who they can become.
Our caring staff and trained Teaching Artists help young people develop social-emotional skills.
YANY students say it best; as one YANY student shared, “[the YANY dance residency] taught me
about art and passion. It allowed me to express myself and what I go through. It taught me that
I am a dancer.”
