Youth Classes

Our 14Y Youth Classes engage heads, hands, and hearts.

Our signature Youth Classes, taught by professional teaching artists, give your child the opportunity to hone their skills and express their creativity in a focused, supportive setting.

Youth Classes are open to children ages 3 to 12 of all needs and abilities* – your child does not have to be enrolled in any other 14Y programs to participate. 14Y Members or participants receive 14% off class rates!

*All classes are disability-inclusive and will provide staffing support and accommodations for all children to be successful. If you have any questions about disability inclusion, please email Mallory Stehle, Associate Director of Youth Programs, at Mstehle@14StreetY.org.

Stay tuned for further details on After School, Youth Sports and Youth classes.


14Y Partner Theatre Classes with Chickenshed NYC

Chickenshed NYC is an inclusive theatre company for young people of all abilities and backgrounds. We use the inclusive methodology of London’s Chickenshed Theatre Company–which has for 45 years pioneered inclusive theatre programming—to ensure that every participant can be a successful member of our theatrical community.

The core programs are Chickenshed Players, weekly inclusive theatre workshops for kids and teens, and Tales from The Shed, inclusive and immersive live performances for preschoolers.

Chickenshed Players

Grouped by age, Players learn singing, movement, storytelling, and sign language in a no-auditions, nurturing environment. Specially trained Teaching Artists lead diverse participants as they collaborate in the creation of theatre. Young people from traditional/typical experiences work side-by-side with those who face physical/neurological challenges or other historic barriers to participation. All participants are empowered to become part of a fun, successful theatrical community.

14Y Members receive a 14% discount on class registration with coupon code 14Y.
