Spread the word

Whenever we ask applicants how they heard about YoungArts, a huge percentage of them tell us it was word of mouth. That's right. Good old-fashioned word of mouth. Since so many of you have told us how YoungArts has changed your life, we'd love it if you could help spread the word and encourage the next generation of artists to apply to YoungArts.

You can do this by talking to students, educators and parents at schools, summer programs, festivals, conferences or on social media. Have a YoungArts story to tell? Share it with us and others by using the hashtag #becauseofyoungarts on FacebookTwitter, or Instagram.
