WHY DO WE DO IT?

 

IT'S PRETTY SIMPLE.

These days, most teenagers feel like they have no role to play in society, and no chance for a brighter future. 

We believe the key is real-world, high-level work



When you give someone a real job with a lot of responsibility, they rise to the challenge. 
 

Working backstage on professional theatre and concerts, kids practice hard work, communication, leadership, science, and art- and all on tight deadlines. 

 

It's a simple concept with a huge outcome: teenagers discover success within themselves and find a valuable role to play in the world. 

Oh, and it makes our high-tech industry way more diverse!
