Young Actors Theatre students are Model Citizens in the Capital City. We empower the future. One kid at a time. We need a way to train students to be life-long learners. To be endlessly curious, to take matters into their own hands, to refresh students and remind them that learning is the key to unlocking their future. We need a place to concentrate solely on self-empowerment. We have created that place under the umbrella of Self-Empowerment Theatre.
YAT has been around since 1976. We have been teaching, creating, innovating, and playing in Downtown Indianapolis since then, and we are here to stay! Our students love our programs, and they keep coming back.
We serve 37,000 individuals and have a 90% return enrollment rate.

There is an ever-changing wealth of opportunity for youth here at YAT; we are dedicated and committed to empowering youth for life, preparing them to make their own way in the world. But we do not do it alone.
Your involvement allows us to create theatrical opportunities to instill confidence, creativity and discipline in youth.
