Winter 2019 Community Beneficiary:
Kansas City Young Audiences is the largest nonprofit arts education provider for children in the region. If you haven't heard of us, there's probably a good reason...our typical "end user' is a second grader. And they don't usually know it's "arts education." They're too busy learning their multiplication tables through music. Making up hip-hop songs to experience poetry in English class. Or building inner confidence and learning to collaborate with others through plays and other performances.
We ignite learning in Kansas City classrooms with the transformational spark
of the arts!
