Why YES Programs Matter

The arts offer us a chance to reach beyond ourselves, to see the world as the collective it really is. Practicing art, we gain experience with the skills and habits that lead us to transcend tough times and make the world whole. Tolerance. Trust. Acceptance. Commitment. Shared purpose. Resilience. And, in the end, hope.
