what we do
Our mission is to equip students with the building blocks for personal and professional success through the power of an improv education.
In Philadelphia, 74% of students leave high school feeling unprepared for college and their careers. Improv can help students develop skills relevant to life beyond the classroom.
We run a free 9-week series of improv workshops in middle and high school classrooms, taught by professional teaching artists and in collaboration with classroom teachers.
We’re empowering our educators to bring improv into their classrooms by offering for-credit professional development workshops online.
Improv (improvisational theater) is a performance art in which we don’t rely on a script. Anyone can use improv as a powerful tool to build communication, collaboration, and resiliency skills.
