My daughters attended numerous classes and camps at Junior Theatre (JT). They were also members of the cast or crew for many JT shows/performances. It was wonderful to watch my daughters' self-confidence and abilities grow as they learned acting skills and took on more and more challenging roles. It is great to see how the multi-age groups work together; with older students helping younger students. And the staff and teachers are always very supportive of the students. My family has also subscribed to the JT season for many years. Performances provide a great opportunity for students to use their skills in front of an audience.

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

my daughters' increased self-confidence and in the performances that I have enjoyed.

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

the sense of caring that I observe in the staff, teachers, students, and parents. It is a great community!

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

bring the joy of theatre to more kids; especially less privileged kids.

San Diego Junior Theatre has done more for my son's personal development than any other other program he has been a part of. I am not sure where he would be today if not for SDJT. And he is not alone. After 10 years of involvement with SDJT, I can honestly say that it does more to prepare kids for life as an adult, regardless of whether or not they pursue a career in theater, than any sports or other extracurricular program available in San Diego. Thank you JT for helping my son become a man.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

add a more developed Conservatory component to meet the needs of thoseolder kids looking to pursue a career in theater.

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

how it touches so many kids from all walks of life.

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

conscientious and committed.

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

expand its program to reach even more kids in need.

Ways to make it better...

funding hadn't always been an issue.

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

funding.

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

any kid with an interest in the theater living in San Diego needs to find his/her way to SDJT - it will change their lives in a very positive way.
