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.

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

The School of YES! offers free tuition to at-risk youth in communities of color as well as twelve paid student leadership positions offered to applicants ages 15 - 18.  

Students participate in classes that emphasize communication skills, collaboration, and the creation of original artwork through theatre, music, dance, visual arts, filmmaking, 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.

The teaching artists for the School of YES! are respected professionals in their fields. Students have the opportunity to interact with successful role models that look like them and in many cases are from their communities.
