Teen Outreach Program
Jacksonville Performing Arts believes in their community and are huge advocates for our youth. We also believe in giving back when we can . The teen outreach program is a FREE program for our teens to be able to experience all aspects theatre performance, stage craft, stage management and wardrobe design with a 12 week program culminating in a final production .
Tickets are sold to help offset the cost of the Production
This program is a personal give back for Nikki and is close to her heart. Nikki lost her father when she was 14 and soon found herself homeless and living on the streets. Because of her experiences, Nikki vowed she would eventually create a space that would be supportive, encouraging and inspiring for other teens . A strong foundation to use as a stepping stone to even bigger things.
We also work with many actors that are on the Spectrum and find that these programs are incredibly beneficial.
It is not just about the productions, but the friendships made, the support given and a belief that anything and everything is possible.
The Teen Outreach program is inclusive , we stand for Unity and Community.
