20+ Years, The History & Success of Our Youth Programs Worldwide

The International Music Outreach Tours were created by The Young Americans® in 1992 to bring music back into schools, opening doors of discovery for the musical talents of young people. Since the first group of Young Americans stepped into a high school gymnasium in Florida in 1992, our Music Outreach programs continue to lead the way, creating the largest music education movement in the world.

Music brings people together for many purposes: teamwork, respect, accomplishment, caring, self-discipline, a sense of self-worth, and MUCH more. Our youth programs have touched lives in nearly all 50 states and beyond including Australia, New Zealand, Canada, England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Germany, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Ukraine, Gibraltar, Spain, Poland, Czech Republic, Sweden, Latvia, Estonia, Russia, China, Japan, and South Africa.

On average, each year we visit over 200 communities and work with over 52,000 students from kindergarten to high school. Our Signature Workshops continue to inspire youth, empower teachers, and strengthen education systems across the globe.



Throughout the years, The Young Americans has been fortunate to partner with several organizations to bring music into children’s lives.  Partnerships have included CMA Foundation, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Make-a-Wish, and more.
