Each year 40 +public, private and parochial schools, pre-school through high school, participate in YEA! Day. Held outdoors at Raymond Park, attended by over 4000 people each year. More than 1000 children participate in the visual arts and have the experience of seeing their art displayed in an art fair atmosphere. The performing arts involves as many as 500 children, singing, playing instruments, dancing and performing.
YEA! is blessed with a large group of enthusiastic and committed volunteers who understand and believe in the mission, and is dependent on the generous donations of community businesses, families and individuals.
We believe strongly that the YEA! experience has a formative influence on many children to nurture, enable and inspire them with confidence, wisdom and well-being as they face the challenges of adult life.
We are happy to provide the opportunity for the expression of their creative spirit, and are truly grateful for their willingness to participate with genuine enthusiasm and trust.
