By 2019 YEAH! expanded its impactul programming to reach 38% more youth.
Over 40% of youth took advantage of our community-funded (that's you!) Scholarship Program and no youth were turned away from programming due to lack of funds.
In 2019, 98% of our campers reported an increase in overall confidence, skills at playing an instrument or singing, AND collaborated with people of diverse identities and backgrounds. 94% learned to work better in a group and as a team.
Your heart, drive, and generosity helps facilitate the creative collaboration of hundreds of young songwriters and artists. Together we provide our youth with opportunities to experience the artistic process and create a community rich in authentic, empowering, and inclusive conversation. Our work helps all our participants build up their wings to soar and explore further the world we all share.
This year long work happens because of you.

Hi everyone. I had to record a podcast for one of my Information Science classes. So I wrote and recorded this sleep story called Autumn Nocturne. And I decided I wanted to share it with you. My buddy Matt Bauer, who’s a genius, does the music. Check him out.
Please feel free to download it. If you’re so inclined, toss a couple of bucks to Youth Empowerment Through Art and Humanities, the organization I volunteer for that puts on rock camps. Things have been tough this year and we could use the help to keep putting on awesome arts programming for kids.
