As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, YAA is entirely volunteer run with a strong "can-do" ethic.  We warmly welcome members and friends of all talents and abilities to join our ranks of artists and art lovers who breathe life into our association and help keep the arts alive in York.

We encourage you to consider one of the many opportunities to contribute to the continued success of YAA in an area that suits your interests and abilities. Please check the Program Calendar for Volunteer Opportunities.

Volunteers are the backbone of the organization and make it possible to be a part of the community at large. It is possible to volunteer by registering for any of the events or programs below.  Please call us at 207-363-4049 with any questions.
