With your help, we make a difference in the lives of kids all over the Northwest Philadelphia area, and beyond. As you consider your impact, please use the following resources:
This year, we saw 354 kids impacted by our programs.
We ran 7 unique programs this summer, ranging from summer camps to after school programs, to our original musicals.
This year alone, we provided employment for 56 artist-teachers, many of them professionals working in their field.
In scholarships this summer, we gave away $100,000 worth of camp, continuing our commitment to be accessable for all.
Our family is in love with Yes! And... Collaborative Arts. Our 7-year-old daughter Kalila has attended Yes! And... summer camp since she was 4. Thanks to the camp's loving staff, dynamic curriculum, and diverse, inclusive community, she has become extraordinarily comfortable on any stage. Even more importantly, she has become more confident and developed an understanding of what it means to use artistic expression to explore and assert her own identities. During the summers, she comes home each day from camp regaling us with delightful stories about the Yes! And... community, and during the school year she often brings up memories - songs, games, stories of friends or counselors ("travelers") - from camp. We can't imagine summers without Yes! And... camp and look forward to many more years with this special organization. Thank you, Yes! And...! Sonia Rosen and Samer Abboud, parents of Kalila Abboud-Rosen, age 7
