Arts for a Better Tomorrow - ABT

Founder / Ceo

Jose Yenque founded Arts for a Better Tomorrow after 13 years of mentoring the youth in Tijuana orphanages and seeing that there was a need for a new approach to help our youth.
At the age of 14 years, Yenque’s life was turned around by the transformative power of
art when his mother New York veteran actress Teresa Yenque (30 Rock, Law & Order)
enrolled him in a drama workshop that helped him go from a shy, 230 lbs young man
who stuttered, to a confident and gifted actor, at home on the stage and comfortable with
himself.
Thanks to this life-changing experience, Yenque created Arts for a Better Tomorrow
(ABT), a 501(c)3 non profit international arts organization that harnesses the
transformational and healing powers of the theater and media arts, to effect real change
and offer positive paths to the future for at-risk youth on both sides of the border. The
program does more than just work with teens in Tijuana orphanages and US public
schools. The program uses the ABT network to connect students on both sides of the
border through video messaging teaching empathy while creating an international
camaraderie. www.ArtsBT.org
