Target demographics: Mosaic is a notional model for arts education and youth development, providing accessible theaatre and music training for Metropolitan Detroit area young artists, ages 7 - 18, annually, regardless of economic ability to pay.

Programs: Mosaic has pioneered a unique model of youth development, which is grounded in current research, theory and practice. The Mosaic Model includes three core elements which are hallmarks of positive youth development, engendering success throughout life and in many realms. Mosaic engages the youth of our community through the following current programs.

Mosaic First Stage Programs (Ages 7-18): Mosaic First Stage programs provide entry level performing arts training to approximately 400 area youth annually. These workshops are presented in collaboration with community partners within the low income and underserved Northend, Osborn and Southwest Detroit neighborhoods.

Mosaic Main Stage Training Programs (Ages 11-18): Main Stage is the core program of Mosaic, providing nine months of free, intensive education and training in acting and vocal music to young artists. This year, approximately 150 young artists were selected for the youth ensemble by audition and interview. Ensemble members work with professional actors, writers, musicians, and designers. Mosaic's critically acclaimed local perfomrances and tours promote a positive image of metropolitan Detroit area youth and provide a model of multicultural cooperation.

Next Stage Touring Company (Ages 14-18): Approximately 12 senior members of Mosaic's Main Stage youth ensemble are selected each year by audition to perform in the Next Stage Company. These young artists recieve leadership training opportunites, act as peer mentors and leaders to Mosaic's less experienced young artists; and are paid for small group community performances.
