Youth Art Connection (YAC) is a newer local charitable organization which was founded by two fantastic people, Ann Denny and Ryan Veltmeyer—who are dedicated to working with youth and promoting positive change through the power of the arts.
YAC works in partnership with existing organizations and communities to support the development of youth as creative entrepreneurs and community leaders. They have a growing roster of youth and guest artists—dancers, filmmakers, performers, designers—who participate and benefit from the programming. Keep an eye on YAC. They’re doing great things, and just getting started!
