Young Strings Project Outreach/WIWS
The YSPO mission is to enhance the lives of youth with limited access to classical music in the Seattle area. The World Youth Orchestra project builds confidence, self-discipline, creativity, new perspectives, and deeper community connections in its participants by providing, without charge, classical music instruction, both instrumental and orchestra, and engaging classical music experiences.

In 2015-16 and 2016-17 YSPO received two Youth Arts grants totaling $18,000 from the City of Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, and we have re-applied for a two-year grant of $6,000 for 2017-18 and 2018-19. We have also received two Seattle Peoples Fund grants totaling $5,500 as well as two D'Addario Foundation grants totaling $6,000.
YSPO depends heavily on its volunteers, fiscal agent services, and in-kind venue rental donations. Casa Latina in Seattle provides space for our most important project, the World Youth Orchestra, which holds its weekly two-hour Saturday afternoon rehearsals for the continuing orchestra, plus a one-hour session for the beginning orchestra at Casa Latina.
