YAFA (youth art for action) is a foundation where young artists donate their work to empower the community around them. Using art as the instrument for change, all proceeds made at YAFA go toward non-profit organizations.
Our goal is to give a voice to the voiceless and bring awareness to their issues. Moreover, YAFA seeks to empower young artists by showing them that their creative talents can create change in the world around them. Currently, YAFA is partnering with the Learning Buddies Network and Alzheimer Society of B.C.
About Learning Buddies
Learning Buddies Network is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping elementary school students develop essential literacy and math skills through free one on one, after school tutoring in a fun group setting. They reach children who otherwise would not have the help they need. Their goals are to enhance self-esteem through improvement in academic skills and to ignite a passion for learning in a safe and caring environment.
About the Alzheimer Society of B.C.
Families across British Columbia are affected by Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias. The Alzheimer Society of B.C.’s ultimate vision is a world without dementia; that vision begins with a world where people living with the disease are welcomed, acknowledged and included. Working in communities throughout the province, the Society supports, educates and advocates for people with dementia, as well as enabling research into the disease.
