YEA! Charts A New Pathway Forward For The Cadets And USBands

| |

Youth Education in the Arts (YEA!) today announced that The Cadets Drum and Bugle Corps will begin operating as an independent non-for-profit organization with a newly constituted Board of Directors, bylaws and governance structure, beginning March 31, 2020. YEA! will continue to operate USBands, a program focused on delivering services to the scholastic band community.

After March 31, the Cadets and USBands, will operate as separate entities with a well-defined ongoing business relationship, allowing each organization to focus on meeting the needs of their constituencies.

In announcing the transition of the organization, Doug Rutherford, chairman of the board of YEA! said, “Creating this plan for a new beginning has been a team effort that included donors, sponsors, DCI and great friends in the marching band and drum corps community. Through the hard work of so many people over the years, thousands upon thousands of young people have grown and matured through YEA! programs. The Cadets and USBands have withstood the test of time and continue to deliver on the mission to create magnificent human beings through participation in the performing arts.”
