WHAT IS MAP

At MAP we believe young people, regardless of economic status, deserve the opportunity to imagine strong futures. Since our founding, we’ve professionally produced over 700 plays written by under-resourced youth (with the help of over 500 volunteer artists), with the goal of empowering young voices and giving young people tools to become tomorrow’s creative thinkers and community leaders.
