Problem

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.

Professional Development

We’re empowering our educators to bring improv into their classrooms by offering for-credit professional development workshops online.

Why Improv?

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.
