The School of YES!

The School of YES! gets youth involved in their own storytelling. They learn that their viewpoints are important and how, with collaborative techniques, to translate their ideas into larger projects that highlights their voice and the group's intention.

The School of YES is different than other camps because they have so many different teachers here and they all teach us very different things about the arts, but even things about leadership and life advice about getting older
— Zariyah Perry

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! is our FREE month-long summer camp in June and July for ages 7–14 that takes place at the Oakcliff Cultural Center. In all of our programs, students are taught by respected professional artists from the DFW community that are not just successful, but also look like the students they are teaching. On top of the role model teaching artists, The School of YES! also provides ten paid student leaders from the ages of 15-18. 

In The School of YES!, classes will emphasize communication skills, collaboration, and the creation of original artwork through theatre, music, dance, visual arts, film-making, photography, and leadership instruction! The School of YES! provides students the courage and tools to pursue their own projects in their own communities, thus strengthening cultural and community relations while providing a sense of ownership and strong social responsibility. Say YES! To Cara Mia’s School of YES! summer camp and apply today!
