Since 1973, Young Audiences of Southeast Texas (YA SE TX) has been dedicated to helping the arts become an integral part of young people’s lives and education. The organization assists students and teachers in reaching educational goals through programs and workshops which showcase all arts disciplines and integrate the arts into traditional areas of academic study.
With many of its roster artists hailing from Southeast Texas, YA SE TX serves schools and teachers throughout the region by integrating the arts into all traditional areas of academic study. All programs and workshops support the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) objectives and address National Standards for Arts Education and Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) in the arts and other disciplines.
At the core of YA SE TX’s mission is the belief that all children deserve the opportunity to engage in creative and educational experiences with effective professional artists who combine their talent with the ability to educate and inspire children through their work. The organization aims to provide students with lifelong resources of enriching arts and educational experiences, and with unique opportunities to develop an awareness of cultural history and diversity.
