If you have a child ages 7-13 interested in joining YGB in Oakland, please fill out the following Request Form. The process to join begins with filing this form, and is followed by attending a rehearsal, being interviewed by a YGB member and a Director, and attending an audition. Depending on the age and readiness of the child, each new recruit is put on a temporary probation period to determine if YGB is the right fit. Rehearsals happen weekly at Oakland School for the Arts. The commitment is about 4 - 6 hours per week.
