Book YCA

Young Chicago Authors typically works with 15-20 Chicago schools through our Education Partnerships, but we serve many more schools every year.

If you would like to bring a YCA Teaching Artist to your school for a one-day performance/workshop, community-building, professional development for teachers, Louder Than A Bomb prep, or a shorter (or longer) residency. YCA regularly performs these fee-based engagements for student groups ranging from 15 to 1,500.

To book a YCA Teaching Artist for one of the workshops above, or customize a Teaching Artist visit to your school, please email booking/at/
