Become a YArts Partner School or District

YArts Partner Schools or Districts join with Young Audiences in our mission to use the arts to enrich the lives of children and enhance their education by making an up-front commitment of a designated amount of funds reserved to book artists for their school or district.

That money, paid to YA in the fall of their chosen school year, is allocated across the school or district as directed, and we works directly with the schools to book artists that meet your needs while staying within your budget.

YArts partner districts are given priority in scheduling of all YA Artists, and are given advanced access to additional YA opportunities. To start this process, email
