The Youth Arts Initiative is sponsored by the Wallace Foundation, a national organization that fosters education and arts appreciation among youth from low-income neighborhoods. Every semester, the Alliance Theatre brings on professional Playwrights and theater educators to help the kids create an artistic project, culminating in a performance at the end of the session. Currently, about 60 students participate in the program
Alliance is running a six-week YAI session online with the help of Zoom. The professional artists involved are Alliance Theatre's artist-in-residence Maya Lawrence and director Samantha Provenzano.
