"If I could make one positive change in the world,
I would make sure all kids in the world get a chance to work with YPT.
- Tomii, 2017 Young Playwrights' Theater Featured Playwright
Every year, Young Playwrights' Theater (YPT) equips hundreds of students like Tomii with foundational skills in literacy, writing, creativity and self-expression. We provide a platform for young people to put their dreams down on paper, to imagine themselves in others' shoes and to take ownership of their educations, their choices and their futures.
Providing our young people with this diverse toolbox is vital. Academic tools may get a student to college. But social and emotional tools like self-confidence, resilience, creative problem-solving and empathy are what help a student survive their life.
Because when a young person learns the power of their voice, they create a lifelong foundation on which to build their future.
But our students don't build their foundations alone; every YPT donor provides an essential tool for their work.
Please support Young Playwrights' Theater today with a tax-deductible donation.
By making a gift to YPT, you will give our students the tools they need to succeed in school and beyond. Together, we can build a brighter future for our students, our city and our nation.
There are many ways to contribute to the success of Young Playwrights’ Theater and its students.
No matter how you give, your support will help us build a better future for young people whose voices have the potential to change the world.
