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 theater  when a drama workshop helped him overcome a severe stuttering and obesity problem.  

Thanks to this life-changing experience, Yenque has a passion for helping teens make it through those difficult years, using art as a vehicle for development of life skills and self-confidence.
