YOSA offers free services to dozens of schools across San Antonio and Bexar County each year. The most focused set of resources are with YOSA MÁS:Roosevelt and the YOSA Invitational.
The YOSA Invitational is a community resource that invites local middle and high school bands and orchestras to rehearse, perform, and record in San Antonio’s premier venue, the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, at no cost to the school.
YOSA MÁS: Roosevelt
YOSA along with four other non-profit organizations was selected as a grantee by the Rackspace Foundation in an initiative to “create an engaged school environment like no other in the country leading to economic, social and cultural recovery of the community around the Roosevelt High School Cluster.”
YOSA was chosen to provide high-quality after-school programming through the Roosevelt Cluster orchestra programs. Schools involved are Roosevelt High School, White Middle School, Krueger Middle School, Camelot Elementary, Montgomery Elementary, Walzem Elementary, and Windcrest Elementary.
An intensive program of services is provided to help transform Roosevelt High School and its six feeder schools into a world-class orchestra program. YOSA provides:
Sectional coaches, Clinicians, Teaching Assistants
Other resources, as well as tuition assistance for affiliated students to participate in YOSA programs including the YOSA Orchestras and Summer Symphony Camp.
