The YBCA Young Artists at Work (YAAW) program is a paid, year-long, multidisciplinary arts-as-activism residency for Bay Area high school youth at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.

The YAAW program is designed for young people that are interested in expanding their artistic craft while connecting with local communities and the contemporary art world. The YAAWs spend the year (after school, on Tuesdays and Thursdays) designing and producing original community-based arts projects under the guidance of YBCA artist-mentors.If you are:…a critical thinker…a creative visionary…driven to make art that inspires change in the world around you…excited about collaborating with other young contemporary artists…ready to design and produce your own community-based arts project…interested in FREE access to YBCA gallery exhibitions, performances and films…and would like to be paid up to $225 a month to do so, the YAAW is for you!
