The mission of Young Audiences of Massachusetts (YAMA) is to educate, inspire, and empower youth through the arts. We believe that arts are an essential component of both formal education and youth development, and that all students, regardless of backgrounds, talents, and abilities, deserve access to the rich educational opportunities inherent to arts learning.
Many of our artists have adapted their programs for remote learning online. To view them, use the "Remote" filter on the "Browse All Artists" page or find a list with links in our NEWS section. Learn about our weekly Remote Arts Learning Showcases, here.
We look for programs that both educate and entertain. YAMA’s programs meet our requirements.
Through these experiences, the children are not only learning about new instruments, cultures, movement and language, they are also gaining confidence and broadening their life experiences.
I am so grateful to Young Audiences for giving us this gift of art, music and culture. Teachers came up to me to say things like “best ever” and “grand slam” and “couldn’t have been more perfect for our students.
