Fountain For Youth
Changing young Lives Together
Most of the LA Unified schools in Hollywood, Boyle Heights, South LA, Pacoima, and across Los Angeles have thousands of students from low-income families. At many of these schools, there is little or no funding for arts education, especially theatre. Many of these kids graduate high school without experiencing the arts at all. This is a crisis for our society. Fountain for Youth brings arts education to these talented students across Los Angeles.
How we change lives…
1. Free Tickets for Local Youth—a year long program that provides the opportunity for youth from neighboring communities with the transformative experience of seeing live theatre at the Fountain. This program is designed specifically for those students who might otherwise not be exposed to live theatre because of circumstances beyond their control.
2. Walking the Beat Hollywood—a groundbreaking summer residency for kids and the cops that patrol their neighborhoods to create a piece of theatre about community policing and their shared role in building a safe community.
3. Devised Theatre Lab—(in development for 2020) an in-school arts education program that equips students with the tools to create a new theatrical works with their bodies, voices, and imaginations! PILOT PROGRAM IN OCTOBER SIGN UP NOW
