Since 1996, more than 13,000 at-risk youth from social service agencies across the Valley have participated in our Sponsor-A-Seat program. They have enjoyed such VYT productions as Annie, Cinderella, High School Musical, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Oliver!, West Side Story and The Wiz, Peter Pan, Into the Woods and Disney's The Little Mermaid.
Over the years we have partnered with a number of agencies including: Boys and Girls Club, Crisis Nursery, Florence Crittenton, Free Arts of Arizona, Friendly House, Guthrie Mainstream Services, Phoenix Day Center, Shaw School, South Phoenix Youth Center, Sunshine Acres, Salvation Army, UMOM New Day Centers, Up With Kids, Valley Big Brothers Big Sisters and more.
Each year employee volunteers from APS and other companies volunteer their time on performance day to help VYT staff make Sponsor-A-Seat an extra-special day for our participants. A contribution of $50 sponsors one child’s ticket and lunch with the cast and crew. Be sure to check with your organization to see if they have a matching gift program.
