Youth Unscripted is Urban Improv’s after school program for high school students that meets on Thursday afternoons from October to June. As a participant of Youth Unscripted you will meet a diverse group of students from around the city, use theater games and scene work to explore your own identity and social issues that impact you & the community you live in. Together you use the discussions and exercises you do throughout the year to plan a culminating event that’s open to the public, inviting them to explore the very issues you have been discussing.

When I walked into Youth Unscripted this year, I walked into a room of people that I didn’t know and now those people are my closest friends. My Youth Unscripted leaders have become really important mentors who have given me important tools to use in my everyday life. We talk about EVERYTHING. Youth Unscripted is all about coming together. We connect on issues of emotional substance like homophobia, racism and sexism. That way, we become open to new ways of thinking and acting.
