YMCA Arts programs and classes are excellent opportunities for youth to gain exposure to a significant aspect of our culture. Through the arts, participants experience activities that foster self-expression and build self-esteem, develop imagination, critical thinking, and valuable social skills. Arts programs create a better understanding of the various cultures and backgrounds that make up our community and help foster uplifting relationships. The arts are ideal in celebrating families, friends, and communities.
