YAYA (Young Aspirations/Young Artists) is a working studio and youth arts center in New Orleans that was founded in 1988. YAYA empowers creative young people through educational and entrepreneurial experiences in the visual arts. YAYA has worked with thousands of artists, primarily Black teenagers with an eagerness to explore their creativity. The Ana & Adeline Foundation complements YAYA by supporting its alumni into their adult lives through grants, scholarships, and professional development opportunities.

Since 2015, Ana & Adeline Foundation has awarded grants and scholarships to 60 individual YAYA Alumni totaling $540,000, including $120,000 in emergency relief grants awarded during the pandemic.  With support from Ana & Adeline Foundation scholarships, six YAYA Alumni have earned bachelor's degrees in visual arts and one has earned an MFA from schools including Parsons New School, Xavier University, School of Visual Arts, Otis College of Art and Design, Loyola University, and University of Houston. In addition to supporting individual artists, Ana & Adeline Foundation makes an annual grant to YAYA to support their studio and Paint the World travel programs for teen and emerging artists.
