New Professional Theatre's Education Program operated out of two New York City Public School's in Hell's Kitchen. Funded by The Ford Foundation, New Professional Theatre teachers taught playwriting and poetry to New York City teens. Life skills were incorporated in each class, including organization, time management, study skills, and etiquette. The year ended with an outing to dinner and a Broadway show.
It was an amazing experience for these inner city students. New Professional Theatre also provided college scholarships.
