Kidz-n-Character is an after-school and summer program that uses the performing and creative arts to build character and developmental assets in young people.

Kids who participate get to explore exciting activities like theater, music, dance, puppetry, and other arts, while also learning about how to make positive and healthy choices. Teen and adult role models guide participants in this theatrical setting while encouraging strong self-esteem, leadership, and other life and social skills.

Program Audience & Goals

Kidz-n-Character engages youth in elementary and middle school, but interested teens can help as volunteers. Goals of the program include empowering youth to explore their creative interests while developing keen social skills.
