Fall 2023 Session

MCG Youth has been dedicated to inspiring creativity, learning, and personal growth through the arts for over 50 years.


By providing opportunities to hone their creative skills alongside teaching artists, we are focused on developing personal, artistic, future-ready, and civically minded high school students.

We are committed to creating a community that fosters a sense of belonging, interconnectedness, and hope.
