YAYA’s mission is to empower creative young people to become successful adults. We provide educational experiences in the arts and entrepreneurship to New Orleans-area children and youth, fostering and supporting their individual ambitions.


Thank you!

This year's Just Say YAYA benefit was our biggest and best yet! Thirty years of YAYA artists joined us from around the country to celebrate this milestone anniversary and help us honor our founder, Jana Napoli. Stay tuned for pictures, numbers, and more updates from this fantastic celebration. 

If you weren't able to join us, it's not too late to see our exhibition of work by YAYAs past and present! 

Visit the Arts Center, Monday-Friday, 10am-6pm and Saturdays through December 15, 10am-2pm.
