Who are the Young Icons?

Young Icons is a youth nonprofit where your teen’s creativity, songwriting, and stage presence abilities are challenged and developed in fun and exciting ways.

Our top priority is to inspire recording artists and build their confidence in the natural ability to dream and create. One of our biggest successes is bringing in real producers and artists to facilitate life-changing experiences for teens.

Is your teenager an exceptional singer or songwriter?

Our Young Icons are presented with fun, yet challenging recording projects encouraging creative problem-solving, teamwork, confidence, and growth. Experienced musicians and coaches lead Young Icons in a professional studio environment.

This is our 6th year, and our curriculum is inspired by National Recording Artists “Jason Jet and Will White”!
