Founder / CEO & President

DeMarco Howard founded  YÜTH United Through HeARTZ with the vision and drive to promote creativity and a healthy lifestyle within our youth. With a passion for bringing out the best in the kids he works with, strongly believing that not everyone is the same but should all be given the same chance. 

DeMarco started this mission in 2016, opening The ARTZ. An inclusive circus school in Houston providing classes and scholarship for local youth. Since then, The ARTZ has grown from 1,500 sq. ft. and 24 students to almost 5,000 sq. ft. and over 1,000 students served through his programs.
