Will Power to Youth Summer 2018
Youth Employment Applications and Performance Information will be announced soon!
Will Power to Youth is an award-winning one of a kind youth development, employment and empowerment program that hires young people ages 15-21 living at the poverty threshold from the Los Angeles area. Youth are hired full time for 7 weeks to produce and perform an adaptation of a Shakespeare play that incorporates their thoughts and feelings into Shakespeare’s text. Participants build literacy skills, educational resiliency, inter-personal communication skills, and become much more work ready as their awareness of workplace etiquette grows while earning wages for their creative contributions to a youth-driven theatrical production.(Click here for Will Power to Youth Impact Report)
