In 2010, we launched a scholarship program which has greatly increased the number of kids able to participate while greatly enabling us to diversify our student population. Roughly 35% of participating youth across all our programming attend on full or partial scholarship and we have never turned away a student due to lack of funds. YEAH! has been able to provide these scholarships through the generous donations of its fans, parents and supporters, (with a total value in excess of $13,500.00 in 2014!) and it has greatly enhanced the experiences in the arts that YEAH! is able to offer its youth.


In Tennessee, drivers can purchase certain* Specialty License Plates in place of the normally issued state license plate. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of these plates supports organizations like YEAH!

Join camper Graham and tell the world YOU SUPPORT THE ARTS with your TN Arts Commission Arts plate! 

Just take your old plate to your county clerk and swap it—they will prorate your tag fees – you don’t have to wait until your tag renewal is due!
