Summary

YoungArts is the core program of the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts (NFAA). The program's mission is to identify and support the next generation of artists in the visual, literary, design and performing arts, assist them at critical junctures in their educational and professional development, and raise appreciation for the arts in American society. In 2015, the NFAA will celebrate its 34th year of encouraging young artists to pursue careers in the arts.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

NFAA is the only organization in the United States that provides a variety of programs and monetary awards to young artists in all artistic disciplines. Your contribution to YoungArts helps provide these emerging young artists with life-changing experiences and validation by renowned mentors, access to significant scholarships, national recognition. In a society that tends to tell artists to "be realistic," YoungArts encourages talented young artists to pursue careers in the arts.

How will this project solve this problem?

Each year, approximately 11,000 students apply for the YoungArts program. Approximately 800 of these applicants are honored as YoungArts Winners and receive monetary awards. Out of the 800 YoungArts Winners, approximately 170 YoungArts winners are chosen as YoungArts Finalists, and share in a total benefits package valued at $1 million that includes an all-expenses paid trip to Miami, FL for workshops, master classes, performance and exhibition opportunities, networking and more.

Potential Long Term Impact

For over 33 years, NFAA has honored and awarded more than 20,000 young American artists with over $6 million in monetary awards and $150 million in college scholarship opportunities. Many former YoungArts Winners, including actress Kerry Washington, singer Josh Groban, and dancer Desmond Richardson, have gone on to have extremely successful careers in the arts.
