Donor Benefits

CYT relies on the donations of patrons so we can provide quality theater education across the country. According to “The Value and Quality of Arts Education: A Statement of Principles”, students who participate in the arts do better in school, stay in school longer, and win more academic awards. They are also three times more likely to go to college and become more confident, considerate, pro-social and pro-civic citizens! Your generous donation ensures that our students are given these benefits, so that they can go on to build a stronger world for future generations.

"My children have performed in several CYT shows and the quality on Opening Night is always second to none. CYT has a family atmosphere which we appreciate! Not only do the kids make friends of all ages during classes and shows, but parents are given the opportunity to participate in cultivating true community."
