Youth Performance Company
August 12, 2009
Speaking as one of YPC's youth, I must say the warm and welcoming atmosphere they've created has truly made it a second family to me and many other kids like myself. I've seen and had friendships literally blossom there within minutes, and this excellent group dynamic has made for great shows and amazing off-stage experiences. I also applaud YPC for fostering both creativity AND responsibility in it's kids. Members of last year's Young Artists Council (a group of dedicated individuals invested in the present and future of YPC) have been faced with various challenges, from how to keep YPC active during the economic recession, to putting on a production (Mutant Squad) in the Fringe Festival, which by the way was written by two YAC members. Might I remind everyone that these are adolescents who are allowed a creative outlet through YPC, and simultaneously are given the responsibility of carrying the products of their creativity through into things like the Fringe Festival show. I know myself and others have been gifted with YPC, and my experiences there will not soon be forgotten. This is truly an excellent organization.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the great sense of community between the staff and youth.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
fund excellent shows: afford the rights to a wider range of shows, improve costumes, sets, find a larger venue, attract a wider audience, advertise and better fund original projects. And most importantly improve the lives of more youth.
