Rising Youth Theatre’s residency programming is a process-based extension of the company’s mission to center youth leadership, expertise, and stories in relevant performance experiences. In residency work, young people collaborate with teaching artists, facilitators, and youth apprentice artists to leverage creative assets to grow in personal, interpersonal, community, and systemic health skills. Through this work, young people are positioned as leaders in their own lives and in their communities as the drivers of their own personal and interpersonal growth, as well as their civic participation and leadership.
Currently we are in partnership with schools, community spaces, and social service organizations. Current partners: Genesis Academy, Vista College Prep,Create Academy, Glenview College Prep, Phoenix Art Museum, The Harmony Project, The Idea Museum and Benedictine University.
