OUR APPROACH

OUR MISSION
The Possibility Project-Charlotte is a non-profit organization that empowers teenagers to create safe, peaceful, productive lives and communities.  Using the performing arts and community action as vehicles, we develop the next generation of engaged community leaders.

 

OUR APPROACH
The Possibility Project-Charlotte brings together 60 youth, ages 13-19, from various schools, neighborhoods and backgrounds, to participate in our year-round program at Spirit Square.  Each week beginning in August, the Ensemble meets together to increase their understanding of cultural and social issues, to improve their communication skills and their ability to resolve conflicts, to identify their personal leadership qualities and their potential as future decision-makers, and to understand the value and opportunities of service to their communities.

Facilitated by a team comprised of the Directors, youth leaders called the Community Action Team, and a number of local professional artists, the Ensemble undergoes an intensive weekly creative process that combines team-building, performing arts, and community service activities designed to give young people an opportunity to:

1) Explore and discuss cultural and social themes and concerns

2) Receive training and instruction in improvisation, acting, movement, dance, and voice

3) Create an original production for a public audience based on their lives and ideas for change

4) Develop and execute unique action projects reflecting their initiative and knowledge of community concerns
