Through 48 years of experience, we have adapted and evolved to serve the ever-changing needs of students in our state. Since 2000, YALA’s operations and budgets have tripled. In 2007 and 2008, 218 teaching artists, educators, athletic and recreation specialists, and technology instructors were paid $2.1 million to work directly with students from PK through grade 12, accounting for 83% of our total budget.
