Young Voices of Austin has provided my child with so many opportunities and so much fun. The staff provides so much love and guidance to the choristers which makes them eager to get back to the program. The level of musical education is excellent and the performances are wonderfully moving. I can not say enough good things about Young Voices of Austin.

I am happy to recommend YVA! As a photographer for the nonprofit, I have witnessed tremendous growth and confidence in the kids over the years. It provides a safe space for kids throughout Austin to learn more about themselves and each other. Their singing improves every year and the performing opportunities are increasingly exciting. My heart warms when I see the diversity and love these kids have for one another. It's what we need in the world and I'm proud to be a witness to the example they are setting.

Young Voice of Austin (YVA) is a gift! My daughter has sung with them for two years, growing in her musical abilities and confidence. She receives a quality music education while building friendships with a diverse group of youth from across the city. The YVA adults are kind, fun, and develop a wonderful sense of community among the choir groups. Can’t wait for next year!

Incredible organization for kids. Went to the Hamilton play and it was absolutely wonderful. Can't wait for my daughter to join n ext year as all she ever loves to do is sing a d be happy and express herself through music. Hands down the best shuttle service they have. They go above and beyond for the kids and as a parent to have someone you can trust to drive your kid is very important so this guys deserve 5 starts for sure.

I've volunteered with The Young Voices of Austin for 3 years. I have genuinely loved going each week, and getting to mentor the choristers of each groups. The staff are all amazing, supportive people, and create a wonderful environment for the choristers to meet each other. This is one of the best places that I've volunteered at, and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

I have had the pleasure of working with Young Voices of Austin, as well as attend some of their wonderful performances. The vibe of this organization is very familial and inclusive, especially towards those more in economic need. Young Voices of Austin is so much more than a choral group, as the program involves extensive mentors and tutoring for academic, social, and recreational activities.
In the last few years I've been fortunate to have been included in some of the academic programming as part of a professional workshop panel, as well as hosting some recreational activities with Pickleball through a local sports club. At all times I see the members and staff treat everyone and each other with the utmost kindness and caring, and I will always be willing to help this staff in their mission as I am able to. If you are reading this, I hope to see you at the next YVA event as well!

YVA is family... a family that builds each other up. YVA is community... a community that empowers our choristers. YVA is a voice... a voice expressed through the amazing children and young adults they guide through music and through their support of education. YVA is important.

One of the most rewarding experiences is tutoring the choristers at Young Voices of Austin. I’ve loved watching these kids grow over the past two years, helping them with their school work as well as various other concert projects and galas. These are all children who are destined for great things, and I am glad to have been a part of their story and grateful for the role they have had in mine.
