Think Long Term for our community.
The Arts have a proven impact on participants’ academic success and human development.
- Sharpen communication skills
- Develop creative problem solvers (in this world we need that skill more and more)
- Students who participate in the arts do better academically
- Provide positive outlets to express connections, creativity and ideas
Why give to the Yocum Institute for Arts Education?
- The Yocum Institute annually reaches 25,000 individuals throughout Berks County
- 80% under age of 14
- 50% who struggle
- 70% are reached within their local community: school, library, after-school programs, parks, etc.
- 89 cents of every dollar goes directly to program services
- We employ 55 part-time teaching artists. Statistically 95% of the income received by artists goes directly back into our community
