Dear Loyal Supporters,
As the summer concludes and we find ourselves pondering the re-opening of schools, we here at Yo Art are committed to helping our students regain their Spring ’20 level of education. Most organizations have been hit very hard by our current circumstances. Here at Yo Art we are using these challenging times to make our organization stronger, better and more useful to those students in need. We will not succumb, we will thrive. I am happy to report that our Executive Director, Greg Colleton, has made a superhuman effort to reach out to other organizations, other business and other leaders to imagine a bigger and better Yo Art. Our instructors too, have spent many hours this past summer developing on-line programs so that the students can learn efficiently and effectively while staying healthy.
What we are doing
We are partnering with Miracle of Youth to launch a Future Entrepreneurship program with a local high school. The collaboration will bring business owners to speak to the students and help them write business plans. The students will have the opportunity to enter a contest that can lead to prizes and/or scholarships.
We have established a culinary photography program with Burke High School. This will be our first foray into teaching photography at the high school level.
We will get through these challenging times by working hard to make our dreams a reality for these students. Please donate now at https://yoartinc.org/donate/. We here at Yo Art thank you in advance for your help and support.
