YAMA Mentores


Since its inception in 2013, YAMA has emphasized the radical impact of mentorship in our work. We strive to be and develop strong mentors in everything we do – whether it’s a Teaching Artist sitting one-on-one with a student to nail down a tricky cello fingering, or a high school junior sharing their experience navigating the social structures of the high school cafeteria with a younger student.

In recognition of the amazing things that can be achieved through mentorship, we’re led to wonder: what role has mentorship played in your life? Have you been positively influenced by someone special who pushed you to reach for your potential?
