Come to a place filled with creativity, theatre workshops, and leadership through mentoring. 24th Street Theatre has been an iconic Los Angeles venue for community and arts. It is a place to grow, to make new friends, and to create memories.

24th Street Theatre offers many programs that teens and young children can benefit from; whether taking amazing after-school programs and workshops or teenagers serving as mentors.

 

Students from LAUSD / USC Cinematic Arts & Engineering Magnet spent the year finding organizations around their neighborhoods that offered opportunities for teens to gain experiences outside of the classroom.  After researching these organizations, students produced, shot and edited documentaries to showcase the amazing work being done by area students.  Our ultimate goal is to help raise awareness for all teens about these opportunities to improve the health, education, career readiness, and safety of themselves, their peers, their families, and their neighborhoods.
