Art that helps
Art that heals
Art that creates awareness
Youth Art Force is a New York based initiative connecting young talent with purpose. We create curated art-based fundraising experiences benefiting worth while causes. Young artists use their talents to bring attention to important issues in our world and help those in need. The experience cultivates compassion for others and develops self-confidence, along with artistic development. We strive to give young people training and skills in philanthropy, fundraising, and performing.
Special guest a world renowned soprano
Marina Poplavskaya
Since her acclaimed performance in the fall of 2006 of Rachel in the Royal Opera, Covent Garden's concerts of Halevy's La Juive, Russian born soprano Marina Poplavskaya has established herself internationally as one of the most arresting young artists to be heard today. The British press and public hailed her as a major new singer, and as a result of this great success she received invitations from important theatres throughout the world such as the Metropolitan Opera, Vienna State Opera, Bavarian State Opera, Munich, Berlin State Opera, Netherlands Opera, Los Angeles Opera, Hamburg State Opera and many others including the Salzburg Festival.

Our charity
The CYCLE Kids program improves the lives of children by increasing confidence, self-esteem, and overall well-being—all through the experience of learning to ride a bike and make healthy eating choices!

The goal of CYCLE Kids is to help all children realize that exercise and good nutrition supports physical and emotional health.
ASPCA, The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA®) was the first humane society to be established in North America and is, today, one of the largest in the world.

This organization was founded on the belief that animals are entitled to kind and respectful treatment at the hands of humans and must be protected under the law.
The Rescue + Freedom Project
The Rescue + Freedom Project (RFP) is a US based non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing survivors of unique captivity and cruelty and telling their emotionally compelling stories to prompt social change and celebrate a rescue lifestyle. Since 2010 the charity has been freeing survivors from laboratory experiments, senior and special needs animals from shelters, and victims of horrific abuse from around the world.
Ventura County Humane Society
In 2018 our fundraiser was dedicated to Ventura County Humane Society
We were so touched with the tragedy of Thomas Fire Last year, that we organized the drive that benefited Thomas Fire Recovery Animal Rescue Fund by Ventura Count Humane Society. People enjoyed the wonderful concert by incredible young musicians at the chapel of the Church of St. Paul and St. Andrew on December 23rd, 2017. The children donated all the fundsraises to the Thomas Fire Recovery Fund to help horses, which suffered in fire in California.
