Applications for next year’s program will be available in August 2016.
This year’s Student Ambassadors are working on these four teams:
Have you thought about becoming a teacher? Interested in theatre, either as a total beginner or someone who’s a bit more experienced? This year, we’re putting our Theatre 101 Workshop Series in the hands of this team. You’ll develop the workshops, select teaching artists, and help to lead the sessions.
Are you interested in making a positive impact on your community? Passionate about the importance of the arts? Develop and plan an Arts Summit event that brings together teens from across Los Angeles to discuss big issues and figure out solutions to help all students have access to the arts.
Do you like making people feel welcome and creating fun, inclusive events? This team will focus on making CTG a welcoming place for other teens by designing special events and reaching out to schools, organizations and students to attend.
Do you feel like talented young artists in Los Angeles should be celebrated? CTG wants to create a way to recognize LA’s teen theatre artists, and we need your help. Taking inspiration from everything from the Academy Awards to Project Runway to the Forbes Magazine “30 Under 30” list, this team will develop a model for an LA teen theatre award program, to be launched by CTG in 2017. Design a program that will celebrate your peers for their talent and hard work!
CTG Student Ambassadors attend meetings from November to May, as well as evening and weekend events. This is a six-month, approximately 60-hour program.
Please check the dates below to be sure you’re able to participate and please do not apply if you cannot come to every session. Your parent/guardian and at least one teacher or administrator will need to sign off on these dates in your application.
