Image2After more than 20 years of being in borrowed, shared, and temporary spaces across San Francisco, Youth Art Exchange's YAX to the Max Campaign will move us to the ground floor of two new 100% affordable Mission Neighborhood Development Corporation housing units and significantly increase our capacity to offer youth places to learn, gather, exhibit - and thrive. Not only will these new spaces better serve existing YAX youth, but they will also enable more youth to participate as young artists. By being on the ground floor of affordable housing units in areas that are rapidly gentrifying and changing, we will provide safe, relevant places for residents to send their children, serving them where they are and further reducing significant barriers to accessing the arts. 

We’re raising $1.5 million for these spaces, our programs, and our future through our campaign and we're halfway to our goal. This will grow our capacity to offer youth places to learn, gather, exhibit - and thrive.

The Walter Elise Haas Fund has pledged to match the first $200,000! Give now and your gift will be doubled.
