Summer Institute is a three year leadership development program that trains teenagers to use their passion for the arts to promote social justice and equity. Across the Twin Cities, our students are positively impacting their communities by standing up, speaking out, and moving those who listen with the power of performance.
Dedicate this summer to nurturing your growth, your creativity, and your courage. Work alongside professional artists and like-minded teens who strive to eliminate racism, violence, and intolerance one performance at a time. Join us to explore art for social change and discover your power to make the world a more just and humane place.
