Fellowships are the next big youth extracurricular

YBCA believes that it is incumbent upon arts institutions to cultivate the next generation of civically engaged citizens. YBCA Youth Fellows is a yearlong, paid fellowship for high schoolers that places them at the intersection of art and activism. Through a diverse coalition of artists, activists, community organizations, and civic leaders, YBCA builds a curriculum that seamlessly blends art making, politics, life skills, and social justice. Learn about why this is the future of arts education.
