YUCA's creative art and design programs in the South Bronx expose youth to knowledgeable and supportive mentors and to a curriculum that engages artistic and practical skills and encourages collaboration with peers YUCA's flagship program is a social justice, art-making education program that walks their students, ages 15-19, through the range of skills and knowledge they need to pursue careers in the graphic arts. Students develop portfolios that enable them to seek employment in graphic design or pursue higher education in the visual arts.
