The Possibility Project-Charlotte is an organization that empowers young people to transform the negative forces in their lives and communities into positive action. Using the performing arts and community action as vehicles, we develop generation after generation of engaged community leaders.
The Possibility Project-Charlotte selects 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 Creative Team (comprised of the director and alumni) and a number of local professional artists, each ensemble undergoes a process that combines team-building, performing arts, and community service activities designed to give young people an opportunity to:
1) Explore and discuss individual, community, and cultural themes
2) Receive training and instruction in improvisation, acting, movement, dance, and voice
3) Create original theatrical presentations for public audiences based on their lives and ideas for change
4) Develop and execute unique action projects reflecting their knowledge of community concerns
