Cara Mía is making a difference in the lives of youth

"We’re giving them tools to be successful later and in their personal lives now […]
This way they can go out being advocates for themselves and change.”

Rachel Harrah, Director of Dance and Theater, Dallas ISD
Speaking to Dallas Morning News about students attending Tina’s Journey

The School of YES!


The mission of The School of YES! is to give young people the skills to say “yes” to a future of their choice rather than feel pressured into a future defined by their environment. 

The School Of YES! combines the techniques of all classes into one fluid camp. Here a student makes her own drum for music class using styles learned in Mexican Arts & Crafts.
