What's New at Unified Theater
Head on over to the UTBlog for the new blog post from YLC member Maggie! Maggie found a great story about engineering students at Rice University and their awesome creativity in creating a wheelchair for Pedro, a student with disabilities. Here at Unified, we talk about creativity a LOT and we love that you can use creativity in all aspects of life, not just theater! We especially love to see creativity used to create a more inclusive world and Maggie shares a great example of that. Click here to read her blog post!
Have you ever been hesitant to try something new because you thought you weren't the right type or fit? YLC rockstar Taylor shares an inspiring story about pushing through even when you face resistance and encourages all of us not to limit ourselves or others. Check out our latest Youth Leader Council guest blog post here!
Our wonderful Youth Leader Council members are hard at work on their blog posts, which we'll share throughout the year. Check out our first YLC post by UT Alum Michael Duff! Mike graduated from Simsbury High School this year and is in his first year at Farmington Valley Transitional Academy at the University of Hartford where he's working hard to start a university branch of Unified Theater. We love this post about the value of trying something new - something we should all be reminded of on a regular basis!
This past weekend, the Unified Theater Staff was lucky enough to spend the whole weekend with our brand, shiny new Youth Leader Council for their Orientation! UTYLC is a group of 10 inclusion rockstars from all over the country who know and love Unified Theater and who will work with us all year on improving UT in various ways, big and small.
