Pioneer Center Youth Programs (PCYP) present live performing arts programs in elementary schools and public libraries within a 150-mile radius of Reno.  Offerings include dance, music, puppetry, magic, theater, storytelling, and more.  Our culturally rich programs emphasize artistic quality, educational value, and audience participation.

We are committed to the belief that the arts are an essential part of every child’s education and that a person’s love and appreciation for the arts stems from his or her earliest experiences.  By bringing our artists directly into the schools and libraries, we facilitate an up-close, personal interaction with the arts that many children would otherwise never receive.  As these children grow into adulthood, they will fondly remember these early experiences and will continue to make the arts a part of their lives.

For just $200, you can give a school the gift of performing arts! Thanks to the generous support of our donors and sponsors, our programs are available at an extremely affordable price.  The cost for each program is just $200 for schools within the immediate Reno-Sparks area and $250 for schools in outlying communities.  All donations are tax-deductible.
