ABOUT POWER OF OUR VOICES:

Power of Our Voices (POV) uses theater as the foundational tool to reach at risk teens that are in danger of dropping out or discontinuing their educations. POV's goal is not to develop talented performers. Broadly speaking the POV vision for participants is to develop leadership skills, acquire vocational strategies, improve academic performance and connect with community resources. We work with students to empower them to create positive changes in their academic lives by helping them to develop patterns of cooperation, disciplined work habits and effective problem solving skills thorough the creation of high quality performances of theatre. POV meets in high schools several days a week. We foster critical thinking by examining literary works for structure and themes, analyzing them and placing them in a contemporary setting. All of these activities strengthen literacy skills and foster a greater view of how one full participates in their community.
