Youth Arts Alliance!

Youth Arts Alliance! (YAA!) provides creative arts workshops inside juvenile detention and residential treatment facilities in Southeast Michigan. The creative spaces we make have facilitated incredible impact through taking positive, artistic risks while exploring the issues that have brought youth into the Juvenile Justice system. Youth tell us they feel safe and free to express themselves.

Invest in the artistic talents of the youth in our community! Every contribution helps and is tax deductible.
