Review for Handful Players, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In my experience, children have their lives changed in two ways: meeting extraordinary people and seeing that they can do something extraordinary themselves. Handful Players offers both. Kids who are in need of a great experience get to work with mentors and coaches who truly inspire. And they get to learn they CAN do amazing things through theatre, whether the hook for them is movement, voice, dance, acting, or just plain being on a stage with an audience clapping for them. It's an invaluable program.

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

watching the kids and seeing what they can learn and how they respond.

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

seeing it grow and take root in the community.

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

tough, dedicated, and extremely creative in finding ways to reach kids who have minimal support systems and few experiences with making a commitment and following through.

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

reach more kids with more teachers and mentors.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
