Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support
Young Audiences of Northern California, part of a national network of thirty affiliates, partners with seventy-four professional artists to bring arts education programs to 81,000 Bay Area students annually, through assembly performances, residencies, and teacher professional development in the arts. The organization has reached a period of relative leadership stability: the current executive director has been in place for three years, and with the board president has overseen a major strategic overhaul through the Performing Arts Program’s new approach to Organizational Effectiveness funding. With renewed funding, Young Audiences of Northern California would continue strengthening its financial and organizational infrastructure and broaden its reach programmatically, both in and out of schools, in order to provide artistically and academically relevant arts education to young people.
