Leadership is a characteristic that everyone has. It means to be brave and be yourself, but also to help other people find themselves and help them grow. —Jordyn, Student Ambassador

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 is the ultimate experience for Los Angeles County high school students who love the arts: an entirely free, eight-month fully-virtual program 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 encourage wellness, embrace and encourage differences, and focus on principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion throughout the program.

This year’s Student Ambassadors are splitting into two teams to design a project to uplift the voices of next generation writers and performers. The Marketing and Social Media team will design communication resources and marketing strategies, and the Theatre Arts Program Development Team will produce a theatrical event.

I find that spearheading events and programs that help get more people to see the arts is one of the most rewarding things. I am interested in this program because something that I am considering for my future is being a theatre manager and helping develop theatre programs and this ambassador program would give me first-hand experience in creating and developing those types of events.

This program really excited me because it’s mission went beyond just developing an act for theater. On top of this, it allows teenagers like me, gain more of an insight into theater entrepreneurship through developing leadership skills.

The world is moving towards a digital workplace. Social media marketing will play a big part in how companies will be perceived. Being a part of the Marketing and Social Media Team would enable me to learn strategies to further my knowledge in social media and marketing.

Joining this program will help me gain the confidence that I have been lacking throughout my high school experience and an outlet to connect with likeminded individuals who I may be able to form lifelong connections with going into college.

I’m very passionate about the arts, more specifically theatre and I love planning events!

I think CTG’s program will help me and other artists further develop our quick-thinking skills and help us to be connected with other young artists in the area. Community is important to me and I believe that CTG can provide an environment that can help artists build that in a time where it is especially difficult.
