Youth in the Arts-IMAGINE (YITA-IMAGINE) is based on the belief that attention to our youth needs to be of the utmost importance and we are committed to meeting those needs through the introduction and development of art education. With limited resources available in schools today for arts programming and curriculum, YITA-IMAGINE combines the elements of personal growth and self-development, with artistic expression as a way to build self-esteem, spirit and self-confidence among youth by demonstrating all of the positive qualities viewed in the various arts. The goal is to positively transform youth while providing an excitingly needed platform for showcasing and nurturing young talent. Throughout the year youth attend YITA-IMAGINE workshops to hone skills and learn new artistic disciplines from professionals in their areas of expertise such as theater, dance, fashion, music, film and stage production.
