Youth At Risk Drama Program (YARD) Southern California
YARD is a non profit organization that works with youth at risk. It is our goal to enable the youth of our communities, through dramatic teachings, to develope a better quality of life for themselves, their families, and all who's lives they touch. The YARD program will work with at risk youth teaching them to understand dramatic literature. The youth will learn to write plays about their life experiences, produce them, direct, act, learn production and design; all aspects of theatre creation to showcase their very important plays. The money earned from these productions will help aid in the cost of the YARD program and will also go to the aid of the kids themselves.
