We help with teens from marginalized and LGBTQ+ communities, plus students with diverse abilities to teach social development and lessons of perseverance.

Contribute to the fight

Every $65 gift provides one youth experience.

Over the past two decades, American Youth Circus Organization (AYCO) members have learned about the power of circus arts for teaching social skills and overcoming trauma.

Donating pays off

We are a 501(c)(3) tax-deductible organization. With every donation, you will receive a receipt that can be used for a deduction on your taxes, and can be shared with your employer if they offer donation matching.
