JOIN THE MOVEMENT
YNY is actively recruiting teaching artists for 2023!
We are looking for practicing artists across multiple mediums and disciplines to work with our court-involved youth from all five boroughs.
BUILD STRONGER COMMUNITIES TOGETHER
Over the last 10 years, Young New Yorkers has connected with 2,000 + court-involved youth, by engaging with the ecosystem of community-based alternatives. By partnering with Young New Yorkers, we can generate fast and long-standing change for our communities and the justice-involved youth who seek our services and support.
Whether you are an artist looking to provide an experiential experience to court-involved youth or you are a local agency looking for opportunities to enhance program and service delivery to vulnerable communities, your contribution to YNY's will make a difference.
