Here at Yes! And… Collaborative Arts, we don't just think collaboration is something that we teach to kids at every program, nor do we simply believe that it's a wonderful method of teaching and learning, we actually actively seek out ways to collaborate with others. In order to fulfill our mission of equipping "children and young people with the tools to be better learners, to believe in themselves and to realize their dreams..." we believe it's essential to collaborate with other organizations and people who are working alongside us to make this mission a reality. A note: We are not a religious organization and do not provide religious programming. Though we will at times collaborate with organizations that are faith-based, none of the programming that we participate in is religious.
These are a few organizations that we are currently collaborating with.
