I have been a board member of Act Three for the past fifteen years. During that time the organization has, since moving to Michigan, worked with youth in Detroit, Highland Park and Hamtramck, Michigan. The fucus of the programs has been educational and preparing youth to further their education by studing, maintaing B or above averages and giving back to their community by helping with clean-up days and other activity. Act Three has focused on theatrical programs and presented skits, ten to fifteen minutes in length, on such topics as Conflick Resolution, the importance of doing positive things, drive-bys hootings, why drugs and alcohol should not be used, being responsible, obeying parents and other authority as well as being role models for other children. In addition Act Three has published an annual Youth, Young Adult Resource Guide, an annual Youth Jamboree which focues on four areas of sports and at least one play per year. The concept is that theaterics help youth become more productive citizens. Act Three has received awards from the state senitor and the representative in its area, Budco, Prevention Network and individuals.
