YAA Value Statment

The Young Artist Academy is a vastly different organization from when it was first founded in 1978.  Since coming under new Management in January 2017, YAA has replaced its previous business model and partners.  That same year, after a 20 year hiatus, Allport Productions was hired to direct the annual award show - equipped by the Academy with new directives and conventions.  With notably stricter security protocols in place, the organization does not permit any unvetted or questionable individuals to be affiliated with its projects and events, barring their participation and proximity to its Members and guests.  YAA proactively separates from unevolving business relationships, with a focus on progressive practices and goals.  In 2018 the Young Artist Academy secured Backstage Productions, and in 2019 the academy partnered with GenZ Social Summit and Kidz Con.  The YAA Board of Governors aim to educate, protect, and train young entertainers to safely navigate and elevate in Hollywood, while giving them an annual platform for high-class recognition.  YAA maintains transparency in its processes and structure, provides a new level of entertainment eduction, and brings its participants and members valuable year-round opportunities.
