Young Playwrights' Theater inspires young
people to realize the power of their own voices.



|

As Young Playwrights’ Theater enters our 15th year of providing the best in arts education to DC Area students, we invite you to join us in celebrating how far we’ve come, and dreaming with us about how far we can go, together.

The impact that YPT has on our community is deep and enduring.  For many of our students, YPT is their first experience with an interactive, creative writing process. And YPT teaching artists are often the first adults to show these students that their dreams, ideas and beliefs are valuable and can have a powerful impact on the world around them.

We invite you to be a part of the YPT dream - that all students, regardless of background, have the Write to Dream their way to a better future. 85 cents of every dollar you give goes directly to into the classroom, so you can be sure your gift will help enrich the lives of thousands of students.

Please give to YPT’s Write to Dream campaign, and write a better future for our region’s youth.
