Simply put, we nourish students’ creative spirit
and fan the flames until it becomes
the source of inner strength.

After serving 2,500 young people from 1984-2008 (history), YATMA now consults with others who want to empower challenged students through a uniquely humanistic arts education. The specific tools needed for initiatives are provided by Its sister company, Merge Education.

YATMA is currently implementing arts mentoring programs in Danbury, CT with Danbury Arts In Action (DAIA) and Merge Education has just begun developing programs at Opus 40 in Saugerties, NY.
