The Possibility Project uses the performing arts to bring diverse groups of teenagers together to transform the negative forces in their lives and communities into positive action. Through a ten-month creative process, each group of youth learns to build relationships across difference, resolve the serious conflicts they face, take on their responsibility to others, and lead. They achieve these outcomes by working together to write and perform an original musical from the stories of their lives and their ideas for change, and design and lead community action projects focused on issues they care about.
Each year The Possibility Project engages 150 youth in four programs, including one for foster care youth and one for court-involved youth, produces four original musicals, and conducts six community action projects.
You can see the youth of The Possibility Project on stage in two upcoming productions!
