All three of my children have taken classes at San Diego Junior Theatre. They love the classes and learned so much. They have all participated as both cast and crew members on the main stage and have grown and learned. Performing has given them a chance to gain confidence, stretch beyond their comfort zone and work as part of a team. I have volunteered backstage, with fundraising events and as a member of the board and auxiliary. I volunteer because I think it is important for all children to experience the arts and SDJT makes that possible.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Watching the productions. Seeing my children grow in their arts experience. I love seeing children in the audience light up when the story on stage comes alive.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Watching children grow as they become actors, singers or crew members. I have also made my own friendships through volunteering at JT. Working on projects to raise funds or improve the theatre has been a fulfilling and rewarding experience for me.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Educated, passionate and friendly. I have enjoyed volunteering and working with the other volunteers and staff.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Expand its outreach program and give the gift of theatre to all children. Expand its education program and add to its inclusion program. With more financing JT could explore different kinds of theatre and bring it to more communiites.

San Diego Junior Theatre has been such a valuable experience for both my girls - they are part of a community of kids their age, they are learning skills that will help them throughout their lives, and they are having a great time! I love it, and would recommend that any parent try out SDJT for their kids!

My daughter has been involved in Junior Theatre for more than four years. She has taken classes, attended camps, been in the cast and crew of shows, and has even trained to work at future camps. She has made great friends and has grown tremendously at JT. The staff is professional and organized. It's the right balance of fun, learning, and structure.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated to the learning experience for the kids

Ways to make it better...

I had gotten more involved as a volunteer sooner

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

ability to raise funds in an environment where funding for the arts is not growing and where other youth theatre companies are starting up

One thing I'd also say is that...

A great place for the whole family... my three children have "grown up" there, and JT has become our community. Staff and teachers are wonderful mentors for artistic kids. Productions are professional and often quite moving. The JT Journey is a terrific experience for kids ages 4-18 who might step to their own drummers. I am going to miss the camaraderie when my youngest child graduates this summer.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching children go through the program and gain valuable skills, perspectives, values and relationships

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

how much fun we all have with theatre activities and the community of JT people

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

interesting, kind people

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

bring the magic of theatre arts to even more children and families
