Flatbread Fundraiser Tomorrow Night!

Join us tomorrow (Tuesday, June 11th) at Flatbread on Route 1 in Rockport for a fundraising event! We’ll be there from 5-9 pm to help raise funds for Youth Arts, a local non-profit that brings artists of all types to the public schools to help provide enriched educational experiences for local students.

The event will include a 50/50 Raffle and a silent auction, and Flatbread has generously offered to donate a portion of the proceeds from pizza orders on Tuesday night to Youth Arts. We’d love for you join us to enjoy great pizza and to support both Youth Arts and Flatbread. Thank you also to Flatbread for the support they provide to organizations like ours in the community.

Youth Arts has funded programs K-12 in Camden-Rockport Elementary and Middle Schools as well as for Camden Hills Regional High School. Youth Arts has been providing these programs for over 45 years and we rely on the generous contributions of the people in the communities we serve to make it happen.

Youth Arts serves to inspire and enrich each student and the entire school community with a variety of dynamic arts experiences in the Midcoast Maine community. We bring art residencies, workshops, and performances to the students of Camden, Rockport, and the Five Town CSD (including Hope, Lincolnville, & Appleton) in the form of residencies, workshops, and performances. We are a non-profit funded entirely by individual and business supporters in the community. Youth Arts is comprised entirely of local volunteers.  Over the years, hundreds of individuals have organized and conducted educational art residencies, workshops, and performances, as well as participating in fundraising efforts to keep these projects happening.

Our programs are designed to provide experiences that the school system does not deliver.

  • Youth Arts activities are responsive to the teachers' requests and integrate with the      curriculum. 

Students and faculty are linked to the arts community through the experience of ResidenciesWorkshops, and Performances
