Healing Performance Program
This is the original and core program of YEPP. Over a course of 6 months, LGBTQ+ youth (ages 18-25) move through a creative process of healing, self-discovery, and life building that results in a self-developed theatrical production. Throughout the process, members are provided with resource support, such as transportation and bi-weekly stipends. This program closes with community performances of the production and possible opportunities to travel regionally and nationally while creating awareness about issues surrounding LGBTQ youth homelessness and its intersections.
This program opens in March with final performances taking place in September of each year. Due to the intimacy of the program spots are limited. Young people interested in participating must navigate an application and interview process in order to be considered.
