Much like our Middle School programming, our high school programming focuses on helping our youth reach their full potential and develop themselves. Activities include those available to the middle school youth, but there is also further access to college application assistance and planning for life after high school. Otherwise, our staff will assist in connecting our youth with community resources that will make such futures reachable. Please note that program participants are limited to those residents of Lewiston Housing Authority.

MAINE INSIDE OUT
Maine Inside Out artists facilitate theater workshops focused on group-building and cooperative work, the development of performance skills, and ultimately the creation of an original performance piece. At the conclusion of the workshop, groups perform their work for an audience of peers, staff and community members.The workshops introduce theater as a legitimate and empowering method of communication accessible to everyone. Workshop participants will learn ways to find expression for their individual as well as collective voices, and will have the opportunity to initiate a dialogue with their audience that may continue long after the performance has come to an end.
