Youth Dance and Enrichment (YDE)
WHAT IS YOUTH DANCE AND ENRICHMENT?
Youth Dance and Enrichment also known as YDE, is a nonprofit organization whose specific
purpose is to support families by granting scholarships to help defer the cost of dance tuition,
youth activities such as sports and educational expenses.
Various fundraising opportunities are available for YDE participants to volunteer their time.
While YDE participants are not paid for their volunteer work, each participant designates where
they want their share of the event’s revenue to be distributed. The event will issue a check to
YDE for volunteer work performed and YDE will then issue a check where the participant has
designated their share go to, the studio, sports association, etc…
We are excited to provide this opportunity to explore the world of fundraising!
