Great Hearts Initiatives | Young Audiences Charter School

Mission

Since 1962 the local non-profit organization Young Audiences of Louisiana has led the state of Louisiana in arts education and quality after-school programs. Our arts-integrated curriculum reflects recent research from the arts education field that provides significant evidence of the value of the arts in the learning process. Research shows that students highly involved in the arts are more likely to have improved grades, better standardized test scores, and lower dropout rates. Additionally, arts education develops valuable skills for the workplace such as creativity, organization and collaboration. Most importantly, the arts are a defining feature of culture; helping students to understand their own identities and providing a window into other historic and contemporary cultures.

Young Audiences has operated after-school programs throughout Jefferson Parish that promote academic excellence and social growth for over 40 years. External evaluations by the Louisiana Department of Education have shown that students enrolled in Young Audiences programs in Jefferson Parish schools outperformed their peers on standardized tests. In addition, students in these programs showed fewer disciplinary reports and increased school attendance.

Truly more being taught than ..." - Lucia Garrity
