What we are All About

The Youth Theatre Workshop is an intensive after-school program that seeks to use the performing arts as a means of disseminating information about and providing a safe atmosphere for discussing issues of adolescent reproductive health.

The goals are to achieve higher levels of critical and analytical thinking skills as well as more substantial literacy skills thereby lessening the rates for drug a ddiction, early pregnancy, STD transmission, promiscuity, poor communication skills, and low self-esteem/self-confidence among Deaf youth, ages 10 to 21.

Why we Designed the Project

In the Deaf community, low levels of critical and analytical thinking skills as well as problem-solving skills, stemming from low educational achievement and social prejudices, result in inadequate socio-economic status and achievement.

Such problems are manifested in the following ways:

  • Early and irresponsible sexual activity
  • Illiteracy and innumeracy
  • Poor sense of self
  • Minimal labor options

The above problems are not unique to the Deaf community, but it is the means of addressing these issues in the Deaf community that is a struggle.

As the performing arts are of a visual

and participatory nature, we believe they are an excellent means of conveying critical information to Deaf youth regarding sexuality and related adolescent reproductive health issues.
