The Young Americans® was founded over 50 years ago in Hollywood, CA. For all of these years our purpose has remained the same:
The Young Americans is a charitable organization
dedicated to the promotion of understanding and goodwill
among people throughout the world through music, dance,
performance, academic education and cultural interaction
among Student Members and their audiences.
It is the intention of The Young Americans organization
that Student Members represent a mixture of religious and
non-religious beliefs. Student Members will also have
differing political persuasions. The Young Americans
organization, however, does not endorse any political or
Student Members are accepted into the organization
based upon their talent and their interest in helping other
students throughout America and the world to attain self-confidence,
self-esteem, and respect for others through
music, dance, and performance.
The Student Members of The Young Americans are never
paid as performers for the organization. As such, their
participation is intended to be educational and not
intended to be an occupation. The Young Americans are
simply a group of talented young people who attend
college level classes, sing, dance, teach others, learn from
others, and entertain throughout the world.
