Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness. ~Psalm 37:3
The Young Artists’ Academy (YAA) is a community non-profit organization where multi-cultural, disadvantaged children from underserved areas of the parish receive free classes in the arts. On Saturdays, throughout the school year, kids from 5-18 participate in classes in dance, voice, guitar, drums, piano, and art. They also have a number of performance opportunities. The children also participate in the Denham Springs Gospel Choir.
In return for the classes, at least one of their parents will take a class in cooking, finance, exercise, of life skills.
