About Us

We believe art can be a catalyst to create equity and opportunity for New York City’s youth, their families, and communities. As a 501c3 nonprofit founded in 1952, YANY continues to act as explorer and trailblazer in the field of arts education. We partner with the city's most creative and inspiring professional artists who practice and teach visual art, music, dance, theater, and digital media. Our innovative programming expands from inside the classroom out into the surrounding neighborhood, integrating art-making with youth development and community engagement. Through the process of creating and sharing art, children can build important life skills, grow social networks, and affirm their belief in a positive future. YANY is a local affiliate of Young Audiences Arts for Learning, the nation’s arts-in-education network.
