Youth Arts is Word for Word's in-school education program where Bay Area students work with professional teaching artists, transforming great stories from the page to the stage in the Word for Word style!

We met our goal! Thank you!

With your help, Youth Arts' teaching artists will lead almost 800 students this school year in transforming fiction and poetry into Word for Word style staged performances. By helping young people become better listeners, speakers, and readers, Youth Arts instills a love of language, enhances performance skills, and bolsters students' confidence and self-esteem in the classroom and beyond!

Your support will help fund Youth Arts programming at Bryant Elementary and Buena Vista Horace Mann K-8 in SF's Mission District, Francisco Middle School in SF’s North Beach/Chinatown, and Life Academy of Health and Bioscience in Oakland's Fruitvale district.
