Striving to create a safe, substance-free environment that nurtures artistic expression, creativity and self-confidence. The Friends of Madison Youth is a non-profit organization that runs programming out of the youth center at The Madison Arts Barn. The Barn aims to act as a creative outlet and venue of expression for local teens and young adults. The youth of the Connecticut shoreline can attend and participate in concerts, creative workshops, theatrical performances, and more all in a safe and supportive environment. It is our goal to bring the community together through music, arts and culture and to empower young people by supporting them in the exploration of their interests and passions.
