The Young Americans®, founded in 1962, 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 religious agenda.
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 Young Americans’ Mission is to provide education, guidance and inspiration to young performers from any and all walks of life. Through our performing arts college, music outreach programs, and a variety of other performing opportunities, we give these aspiring entertainers the opportunity to hone their talents and the courage to expand their dreams.
The Young Americans envision a future where every talented performer is nurtured and taught to find their own voice and encouraged to share their individual truth with the world.
