Youth Arts

Youth Arts is a unique arts education program that reaches hundreds of Bay Area youth annually. Youth Arts teaching artists lead students in transforming fiction or poetry into staged performances in Word for Word style. By helping youth become better listeners, speakers, and readers, Youth Arts aims to instill a love of language and reading, enhance performance skills, and bolster confidence and self esteem in the classroom and beyond!
