About Us

YAAS! Young, Authentic and Social is a transformative arts and culture program, for YOUNG PEOPLE aged 12-24 living on the Central Coast, with a focus on those with diverse identities and abilities. 

At YAAS! we are working with young people in a creative and collaborative manner to bring out the best in them. The program includes events, performance, celebrations and creative workshop activations and “fortnightly social” group for 12-17 year olds

YOUNG PEOPLE engaged in the YAAS! Program are empowered to explore and express their unique creative identity, develop personal resilience and leadership skills, build friendships and community circles and experience a sense of belonging as their norm through ongoing participation, celebration, volunteering and creative workshops with opportunities that reinforce the transformative impact of empowering YOUNG PEOPLE to explore and express their unique creative identity. 

Everyone is welcome at YAAS! including friends, family and allies.
