Youth Performing Arts Program


Youth Performing Arts Program
Partnership Application

The Lois Lehrman Grass Performing Arts Fund of Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts was created at the completion of the Advancing Performing Arts Challenge and makes resources available to support a Youth Performing Arts Program. The focus of this program is to partner with local performing arts organizations to provide arts education opportunities to students in the community. Organizations may apply to receive funding or in-kind services to support a youth-focused program at Whitaker Center. We currently are able to support the following:

  • Youth Performing Arts Summer Camps
  • Youth Performing Arts Workshops
  • Special Performances Targeting Youth

To be considered, organizations must be youth or performing arts focused. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and reviewed monthly by Whitaker Center’s Leadership staff. Program dates are subject to facility availability. If a specific date is required, please apply at least 60 days prior to the program start date.

Please fill out the Youth Performing Arts Application.
