I have always loved being on stage and escaping the boring day to day stuff, and Youth Performance company allowed me to do that. As a young women of color, I also felt a huge sense of pride and respect for YPC's yearly dedication to telling the stories of African Americans that are apart of history. When they tell the story it is not told in a "sugar and spice" manner, they get to the facts and deliver the message! YPC has blessed many youth whether they are acting,behind the stage or in the audience, simply amazing!

As a professional working in the field of vioelnce prevention, youth development is the foundation of much of the work we do. The Youth Performance Company embodies the heart of positive youth development - fostering self actualization and empowerment in the context of a safe, welcoming, and inspirational location that challenges and supports youth as they grow as people. As an alumni and former board memeber, it is with great joy that I am able to continue to support and work professionally with the Youth Performance Company!
