The Young Entertainer Awards Foundation is a non-profit organization that was created by various members of the entertainment industry who want to provide a positive incentive for young entertainers to perfect their skills, to build a strong foundation of confidence that will benefit them, not only in their present acting career, but also in whatever path they wish to follow in their future, and to provide a scholarship to an individual or to another organization or institution assisting talented youth who might not otherwise be able to realize their dream.

The Young Artist Academy recognizes exceptional international talent ages 5-18, each competing in separate Young and Teen categories for fairness. The academy also recognizes adult talent and alumni by bestowing special merit awards to those who have made a world impact on entertainment, and especially on a younger generation in entertainment. In recent years new categories of recognition have become available such as Director, Writer, Producer, Music/Video, and Influencer.
For over 40+ years the organization has honored a multitude of international artists who have gone on to successful adult careers, becoming household names in the entertainment industry.
