About the Organization

The Possibility Project brings together vastly diverse groups of teenagers who meet 6-7 hours weekly for nine months. They engage in a social/emotional learning (SEL) experience focused on social justice that uses the performing arts to examine and address the personal and social forces that shape their lives and identities. Through the creative process, they work together to write and perform an original musical from the stories of their lives and their ideas for change, creating a theatrical road map for change. They then design and execute community action projects that make an impact on issues that are important to them..
