BENEFITING: Urban Improv

Liz OConnor


Urban Improv is a nonprofit youth development program which uses improvisational theater as a method for helping youth explore pathways to good decisions. Professional actors work with Boston youth in structured improv scenes to reduce violence by teaching:

· Conflict resolution skills
· Decision-making skills and
· Impulse control

In interactive workshop settings, students explore their own solutions to challenging, real-life situations. Here is the type of thing they say afterwards:

“Urban Improv taught me to be positive and go about things in a different manner. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to be a part of Youth Unscripted ... It kept me out of trouble…it kept a lot of us out of trouble.”

Jerry is a member of the Board and this year is running the Boston Marathon as a way to expand support for this great program. I am taking the easy route, ... sitting at my computer helping him to raise at least $5000 in service to that goal.

Will you help?
