Make an exponential difference

Spreading awareness is a great way to help support our cause.

You can still support Young Audiences at www.ya-or.org/donate Thank you!


Young Audiences is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to inspire young people and expand their learning through the arts.

All donations to Young Audiences are tax-deductible.

We believe the arts are a powerful tool in student achievement. The best learning happens when students are invested and engaged - the arts make this possible. 

Each year, we help transform the education of over 70,000 children with; 

  • Dynamic artist residencies, workshops, and performances in a variety of art forms across multiple cultures that teach essential lessons about creativity, collaboration, and the diversity of ideas.
  • Live SET (Sound Engineering for Teens) and the Business of Music programs that shine a light on career opportunities in the arts for high school students.
  • Innovative literacy lessons that improve reading and writing skills by using the arts 

Your 2017 investment in Young Audiences will provide arts-learning experiences to children throughout Oregon & SW Washington that teach kids to respect others, make connections, express themselves, learn from their mistakes, and persevere. Together, we're building the next generation of creative young people and tomorrow's compassionate leaders.

Please join us to ignite kid creativity!
