Bringing the Arts to over 160,000 students every year!
About Young Audiences/Arts for Learning:
Young Audiences, the nation’s largest arts education network, began in Baltimore in 1950. As the Maryland affiliate, we are a nonprofit organization devoted to enriching the lives and education of Maryland’s youth through educational and culturally-diverse arts programs. We partner with professional artists from all disciplines and with schools throughout Maryland for hands-on arts learning experiences. We envision a Maryland where the arts are valued for their capacity to transform lives, and where every student is immersed in opportunities to imagine, create, and realize their full potential through the arts.
YAMD offers its interns a unique and valuable chance to learn the ins and outs of non-profits active in this sector and to contribute to the continued success of the organization.
