During each arts program, Project Members are partnered with adult volunteer theater artists who support and collaborate with them to bring their vision to life. Performers, directors, and writers are invited to participate in artistic programming to give each member personalized support and keep at least a 1:1 ratio of young people to adults.
Every arts program culminates with a presentation of the work the young people have made, and production volunteers help the young people fully realize the work they’ve created. Costume designers, lighting designers, sound designers, stage managers, and backstage crew are regularly needed for 52nd Street Project productions.
Volunteer tutors support Project Members with schoolwork and with educational goals like college applications, and are brought on by our education team on an as needed basis. After getting to know The 52nd Street Project community, volunteers also may be invited to participate in Smart Partners, a weekly mentor program.
