Reclaiming Our Way promoting the well-being of African American children & families


The Broadway Theater Company Giving Troubled Teens a Second Act

The big and obvious question is why we don't see more of this as a matter of everyday practice, rather than as a "special" initiative once children have already disengaged. These are the kinds of activities and programs that all of our youth need to have access to - in local community centers, in schools, in churches and in all other places where youth congregate.

It's not a secret what supports positive and healthy social and emotional development among youth. We just need more resources and places where these things can happen!

Stargate Theatre pays at-risk youth to script and stage performance pieces. Their aim: to reduce recidivism, teach literacy and provide work experience that looks far better on a CV than jail time.
