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 youth, ages 13-19, from various schools, neighborhoods and backgrounds, to participate in one or more ensembles at Spirit Square.  Each ensemble meets weekly 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 director, assistants, youth leaders called the Community Action Team, and a number of local professional artists, each ensemble undergoes a 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

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 knowledge of community concerns
