Young At Art Museum has been a leader in championing the importance of art in children’s lives for more than 20 years. We believe that children nurtured through the arts are more successful in school and life, and that it is our responsibility to serve and embrace all children regardless of their physical, developmental or financial capability.
It is because of these beliefs, and the support of committed donors and partners, that YAA has developed the following significant community initiatives:
A nationally awarded after school art and academic enrichment program for homeless children residing in Broward emergency and transitional shelters, in partnership with Broward District Schools<.
Girls 'N Power
A gender-responsive program that improves the self-esteem of at-risk teen girls from PACE Center Broward.
Green Workshops @ IKEA Sunrise
Environmental programs conducted at IKEA Sunrise that use art-based activities to empower children to make informed choices to help the earth.
Financial aid for families enrolling their children in art studio classes and art camps in the Young At Art Institute.
Teen Fashion Show & Comic Convention
Opportunities to showcase the artistic talents of teens through annual events, from a show featuring recycled fashions to cartoon and anime art.
Classroom & Community Outreach
Programs in art, world culture, the environment and math delivered by museum educators at classrooms and community sites throughout South Florida, including a new early childhood program for better health and lifelong learning sponsored by Coventry Health Care.
