YouthAware Educational Theatre helps students and teachers navigate topics that might otherwise be difficult to approach in a classroom setting. Since 1986, YouthAware's age appropriate programs for grades K-12 have explored issues like HIV/AIDS education, peer pressure, substance abuse, dating violence, homophobia, stereotypes, race, gender expectations, and school safety. Our performances and Identity Matters Residencies are developed to address the ever shifting cultural and social landscapes of our times.
YouthAware programs support state-wide health and wellness curriculums and are designed to help schools and communities better understand matters of equity and inclusion in a safe, engaging format.
