About Us

Young Aspirations/Young Artists, Inc. (YA/YA) is a private non-profit arts and social service organization whose mission is to provide educational experiences and opportunities that empower artistically talented inner-city youth to be professionally self-sufficient through creative self-expression. Founded in New Orleans in 1988, YA/YA provides young artists (ages 8-24) who have limited access to educational resources and career opportunities the chance to apprentice with professional artists, create public artwork, design, merchandise, serve as cultural ambassadors, work as project managers, and mentor others in design arts.
