Youth Ensemble of Atlanta (YEA), the south's premiere African-American youth theatre company with a national and international reputation, empowers youth through the arts to become catalysts for change.
More importantly, YEA fosters the personal growth of hundreds of young people from childhood to adulthood. Along the way these talented and dedicated performers develop crucial communication and life skills that result in heightened cultural awareness, a commitment to excellence and community service, an appreciation for diversity, and self-confidence and self-esteem.
"I was fortunate enough to be a member of the Youth Ensemble of Atlanta, they played a vital role in the artist that I am today. YEA taught me so many things for free! This program is outstanding! Whatever you can do to support, please do so..... so this program can stay around!"
