YAAINC: Back to School, Supply Drive

We are committed to being a leader for philanthropic action in the communities we love and serve! ⠀
The Youth Academy for the Arts, Inc is a registered 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to promoting children's health, well-being, and artistic success through strong parent, family, and community involvement. We offer youth and family enrichment programs and provide healthy, safe fun to engage youth’s interests, build self-esteem and prepare life goals. Simply put, we leverage dance to keep kids safe and drug-free!
 
Because of our efforts, hundreds of children of color in Prince George’s County, Maryland from underserved communities have been aided, cultivated, and encouraged.
 
We are hosting our annual Back to School Supply Giveaway on August 6, 2022, and are requesting your support during these tough economic times.
 
We want to place children and adolescents at the center of our neighborhood and community life, surrounded by caring adults inside and outside their families. These connections help youth develop a sense of security and personal identity and adapt rules of expectations, values, behavior, and morals. This equips youth with the resources needed to move into healthy and productive adulthood.
 
This year, we are also honored to provide a message of hope and aid to students in Atlanta, Georgia, and in Ghana, West Africa!
 
It takes truly takes a village. We are humbled for an opportunity to unite with you to provide students barrier-free access to the school supplies and resources they need to be productive and successful this school year.
 
Our goal is to continue to empower and impact the lives of students across the globe.
