The Challenge and Opportunity

At risk youth do not have diverse options for after-school programs. Research finds community-based programs effectively serve youth who may not be able to participate in after-school programs due to a lack of transportation[1]. Additional research finds that the majority of out-of-school time programs are “gym and swim” and geared toward the physical development of low-income youth in contrast to the mental, cultural, and emotional development of youth[2]. There is a need for a variety of drama education programs located “in” communities.

Towards a Solution

Youth Warriors In Christ "YWIC"
The YWIC program is a community-based drama education program. The YWIC program provides youth enrichment by teaching youth ages 6 to 18 a variety of drama and performance techniques including: acting, singing, dance, mime, drill team, and step team performances. The YWIC Curriculum consist of 10 weeks of practice and rehearsal and concludes with performances at local venues. Additionally, current and former students perform at our annual Supreme Youth Development Center "Love Ball" and the SYDC "Youth Explosion: Back to School" event.
