Last year, we served 190,630 students, from pre-K to grade 12, with our programs, ranging from interactive live performances to long-term, classroom-based residencies. YA’s roster of more than 100 professional teaching traveled to all 24 Maryland school districts to deliver these programs to 420 schools and community sites, providing students with a total of 230,727 learning hours through the arts.

Together,

we have made a tangible difference in Maryland schools and in the lives of thousands of young people. Here are just a few highlights of what we accomplished together:

  • We served 350 more Baltimore City students in our five-week, free Summer Arts & Learning Academy and helped them make academic gains by using our arts-integrated teaching model.
  • We provided over 230,000 learning hours in, through, and about the arts to students in every Maryland school district.
  • We maintained our special outreach programs—Access for All, Rural Access, and Wolf Trap Early Learning Through the Arts—to bridge the gap between what schools with tight budgets can afford and what professional artists deserve to earn.
  • For the first time, we partnered with Bloomberg Philanthropies to place 25 of Baltimore’s rising high school seniors at local cultural institutions for a paid summer internship.
