Mentor Homeless and At-Risk Children
The Actors Theatre Workshop
Join our award-winning theatre and community center this fall to serve as a mentor for homeless and at-risk children in The Builders of the New World, a unique after school education and theatre program in its twelfth year. Classes are taught by Thurman E. Scott, Artistic Director of The Actors Theatre Workshop, and an accomplished actor, director and writer. By helping the children use their imaginations and teaching them reading, writing, presentational, life and community skills, Builders of the New World helps them overcome their present circumstances, enkindles their ambition, and sets them on a path to fulfill their potential as contributing citizens. The Actors Theatre Workshop provides mentor training and welcomes both individuals and teams of mentors from all personal and professional backgrounds; training at our theatre facility in Chelsea will begin shortly, and space is limited. The program will run from late September to mid December in the evenings and late afternoons. Please visit our website at http://www.actorstheatreworkshop.com/bnw/index.html.
