About Stages for Youth

Stages’ mission is to help youth find their voice and express their individuality through digital and performance arts, to change the trajectory of their own lives, those around them, and their community.

Few disciplines require the participant to be creative and a techie, to be a meticulous planner, to think big picture and little picture, to think on their feet to handle the curve balls that will surely come their way, to be a team builder and a peace maker, a collaborator and a friend, to do it all against an impossible deadline, and to have the thickest of skins…because in the end the ROI is as simple as it gets…people like it or they don’t.

If they can handle this, they can handle anything life throws at them.
