To further impact our community, The aCHIeve Project has launched a summer experience targeted to teens who are looking for ways to influence their world. Over the course of this two-week program, through a blend of arts, advocacy, and mental health focuses, these 12-18-year-olds have gained a deeper understanding of their response to stress and be empowered to advocate for their own mental health.
They have created and filmed a public service announcement entitled, “What it’s Like to be a Teen in 2019.” It will be shown along with our capstone stage production, “Right Before I Go.” This play, written by Stan Zimmerman (writer of TV classics “Gilmore Girls,” “Rosanne” and “The Golden Girls”), is designed to “help broaden public perspective of suicide, eliminate the stigma associated with depression, and strengthen the relationship between survivors and those struggling every day.”
The aCHIeve Project Summer Experience This performance is possible in conjunction with La Vie Productions in New York.
Due to the nature of the material, this performance is recommended for people age 10 and up.
