YA SCC Programs


This year’s programs have included summer music programs, character building workshops, trips to the Theatre in Tucson, and the reintroduction of Artist Eric Cork’s “Rap, Rhythm and Rhyme” Fundamentals of Writing for the 3rd time.  This is just one of the residencies we feel utilizes everything that our mission emphasizes, including supplemental support for our educators in the area of reading, writing and math.
Starting in November, Arizona State University (ASU) based Tetra String Quartet will visit just about every school in Santa Cruz County conducting workshops and performing for all grade levels, K-12. YASCC will offer various extended residencies throughout 2015 and we hope to bring back Capoeira Mandinga Martial Arts and Dance in the spring. Every one of our teaching artists have been exceptional in both reaching and connecting with our students and the integration of their discipline with the core curriculum.  We also hope to reinforce our role as co-educators by continuing to promote professional development for our teachers.
