our mission

The Young Shakespeareans' mission

is to empower 4-8th grade children

in underserved communities.

We partner with public schools to provide

challenging after-school programs that alchemize life-skills and academics

with the magic of theatre

to inspire the conviction

“IF I CAN DO SHAKESPEARE, I CAN DO ANYTHING!”.
