The Mosaic Youth Program started in 2007 as a dedicated safe-space chorus and was Denver's first chorus for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning youth and their straight friends. Recognizing the importance of supporting GLBTQ youth, RMAA now operates the Mosaic Youth Program as an outreach service, conducting educational programs in high schools and middle schools across the Denver metro area. In addition, other local GLBTQ youth choruses are occasionally invited to perform with RMAA member choruses.
