Momentum Collective Inc. is partnering with the Alexandria Redevelopment and Housing Authority to provide an after-school arts program to elementary youth who live in subsidized housing in Alexandria, VA. The drama/acting instructor will teach beginner level youth the fundamentals of acting and prepare them to perform monologues and skits for a performing arts showcase later in the school year. The program year concludes on June 17.

Volunteers will also receive support on how to incorporate academic elements into the acting classes. This opportunity is on Thursdays from 5:00pm to 6:00pm and will require direct and in-person interaction with youth.
Areas of focus include:
Improv
Method acting
Character development
Practical aesthetics
Blocking
Social media skits

Program participants will also be featured in a web-series that will be created during the program year.

Group size will not exceed 10 participants. Volunteers must be comfortable working with youth from various socio-economic backgrounds. We prioritize practical aesthetics as our pedagogy but welcome additional schools-of-though around dramatic instruction.
