About the Institute

Mandate
Launched in 1996 in tribute to the memory of Saidye Rosner Bronfman, O.B.E., and her dedication to youth involvement in the arts, the Youth Institute provides unique arts programming and a wide variety of innovative experiences designed to meet the creative needs of children and teens aged 4 to 17.

A Word from the Director
The arts play an essential role in child development. Exploring the arts is not only a satisfying activity, it helps children think more creatively and gain confidence in their ideas, impressions and imagination. The Youth Institute instructors know how to kindle creative enthusiasm and feed natural curiosity. In our non-competitive and nurturing environment, young participants uncover and develop their hidden talent. Self-discovery brings smiles and self-assurance. It is a wonderful process, and I feel privileged to be able to watch it unfold.
