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. YAMA engages students through performances and workshops in schools and other learning centers.
