Yocum Institute is Berks County’s Leader in Community Arts Education

We educate, inspire, and shape our community through the arts. We help people of all ages be more creative and confident, which in turn improves health and quality of life. No other form of education or activity builds our mental, emotional, and social skills the same way—especially for kids.


Our community outreach


Through partnerships with schools, colleges, universities, libraries, recreation centers, and other nonprofit organizations in Berks County, Institute programs impact over 20,000 people annually – truly helping to realize our vision of “making the arts make a difference.”
