Young Friends of Art Council

Mission Statement

The purpose of the YFA Council is to raise awareness about the Nelson-Atkins in the community; recruit new members; contribute funds for the operating budget through fundraisers; support the activities of the Friends of Art (FOA) membership group, and engage and enrich YFA members through events and programs related to the museum’s mission.

YFA Leadership

The success of YFA is possible because of the dedicated efforts of volunteer leaders that comprise the YFA Board of Directors, Party Arty Committee and YFA Ambassadors.
