Young Audiences of Western New York
Young Audiences is the leading arts-in-education organization in the 8 counties of WNY. We accomplish our mission through working with professional artists to engage young people in creative learning opportunities, so that they might become extraordinary adults. A sustainable and growing nonprofit organization, we are celebrating 50 years of service and are one of 30 affiliates in 22 states. We provide programming in schools and community centers in the visual, literary, media, and performing arts, in multi-year long-term collaborations, residencies, and workshops. A key strategy and growth area is working with young people living in geographically remote communities and/or in poverty as well as those most at risk of educational failure due to addictions, mental health issues, development disabilities and/or involvement with the juvenile justice system.
