JumpStart Theatre creates access to school theatre for at-risk middle schoolers in our community and has been successfully implemented in nine schools in the Greater Cincinnati area. All selected schools receive ongoing training, mentoring and in-kind/monetary support from ETF and our partner organizations during a three year period while the schools build the programs to a sustainable level. It is our vision that every child will have access to performing arts programs in their schools and JumpStart Theatre has shown great success in only four years.
