The Center Theatre Group Student Ambassador Program is a free leadership development program for Los Angeles County high school students who are curious about the arts and want to build leadership and teamwork skills.

This entirely free, eight-month program (Oct 2019 – May 2020) is designed to transform passionate young people into arts leaders, team players, advocates, and engagement experts. In the Student Ambassador Program, we aim to create a supportive learning environment where we can be our whole selves; we embrace and encourage differences, and focus on principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion throughout the program.

This year, our Ambassadors will be working on one of two teams, Community Engagement and Marketing & Social Media, to produce an audience engagement project for Once on this Island in addition to inspiring community engagement through our social media platforms focused on the August Wilson Monologue Competition Regional Finals and our College and Career Fair for the Arts.
