Young Audiences uses the power of the arts to transform the lives and education of young people

Donate to Young AudiencesFor nearly 60 years our professional musicians, actors, dancers, writers and visual artists have thrilled and enlightened students in schools throughout Northeast Ohio. Last year Center for Arts-Inspired Learning provided 6,300 programs to more than 240,000 children in 275 schools and organizations.

We can’t do it alone

Just as we cannot begin our work without incredible artists and enthusiastic educators, we need our donors to make Center for Arts-Inspired Learning programs a reality. We recognize and thank the 2011 - 2012 contributors who helped provide unparalleled opportunities for learning through the arts..
