The Arts

Traditionally known as places to learn how to do the breast stroke or make a jump shot, YMCAs are rapidly becoming the places where kids and adults learn to paint, write, sing or act. The year 2008 marks the 10th Anniversary of Arts and Humanities as a YMCA core program.

YMCAs have actually been engaged with the arts and humanities from their earliest days, with their popular reading rooms in the 1850s, the Little Theater at the Harlem YMCA in the 1950s, and the first English as a Second Language and other adult learning classes in the 1960s. In fact, artists such as Walt Whitman, Cicely Tyson, Billy Wilder and Sidney Poitier, among many others, honed their crafts at YMCAs.
