In our last fiscal year, we served 173,147 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 artists delivered these programs to 461 schools and community sites, providing students with a total of 496,513 learning hours through the arts.



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:

  • More than 3,350 teachers received professional development in arts integration.
  • We provided nearly 500,000 learning hours in, through, and about the arts to students.
  • 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.
  • We raised $524,077 to underwrite programs for underserved schools and communities.
