EmpowerYouth!: Igniting Creativity through the Arts is a groundbreaking partnership with Lyric Opera of Chicago. It engages 30 African American High School students in a non-academic performing arts program.

The goals of the program are to provide opportunities for exploration of and exposure to the arts while offering a safe, fun, collaborative space for participants to create original work. Throughout the program participants work with our team of professional artist in a collaborative process. The program culminates in a one-night original performance reflecting the creativity, thoughts, opinions, and personalities of the participants.
