New Directions

New Directions serves teenagers interested in the arts. The program is structured to assist them in their transition into adulthood and independence.  New Directions uses theater arts to help develop self-esteem, self-respect, and work skills. This program also enhances survival skills and helps the young participants to prepare for self-sufficiency through job readiness.

"Black Ensemble Theater gave direction to my life. Because of New Directions I know when I become an adult I will be successful."

They are my family.  It’s the place I call home, and it’s a journey that I always want to be a part of.
