Give a child access to the arts!
The mission of BAAY is to enrich children’s lives through exploration of the arts. BAAY serves approximately 1400 children ages 5-17 annually in our Theatre, and EduArts after-school enrichment programs. Through our programs, we create community, and teach children confidence, character, and creativity.
BAAY has a strong commitment to inclusion of all children, regardless of economic status, and maintains a generous financial aid program. In over 15 years of our operations, we have never turned away a child for financial reasons. Over the past three years, BAAY has provided partial or full tuition waivers to hundreds of students in our Theatre and EduArts programs, totaling an average of over $30,000 each year.
We believe that ALL children deserve access to the arts. Your generous gift makes a difference to local youth. Will you help today?
