JOIN POWER OF 10

“OPENING ACT DIDN’T GIVE ME THE CONFIDENCE TO ACT. IT GAVE ME THE CONFIDENCE TO BE ME.”

-Elijah Callahan, Opening Act Alum

Over the course of 10 days, 1031 individuals #SHOWEDUP in a big way for our students to be able to amplify their voices. Our #STORIES are what brings us #TOGETHER. Opening Act is working to build a stage big enough for everyone to tell their own #STORIES and your support of this work is a brave and powerful choice.

We’d like to take a moment to say THANK YOU…

 
Through individual contributions and our generous challenge grant from IHS Markit, we raised $110,000!!

DIDN’T GET A CHANCE TO DONATE DURING THE CAMPAIGN?

There’s still time for folks to jump on stage! #INCLUDINGYOU! DONATE! Every dollar makes a huge impact on our programs and students.

We cannot possibly thank our extraordinary Team Leaders* enough for going ABOVE AND BEYOND. Thank you also to the incredible team who helped us create our Daily Sparks: Jacob Gabbard, Benjamin Lundberg Torres Sànchez, Haldane McFall, Kelly Rockwell, Stewart Villilo, Teaching Artists, Alums, Board Members, and our incredibly dedicated staff! And last, but certainly not least, our AMAZING sponsor, IHS Markit!

With gratitude,

Erika & all of Opening Act


Join us as we come #TOGETHER for the #POWEROF10 Campaign.

October 17 – 26, 2018

The #POWEROF10 is all about harnessing the power of small donations. This year Opening Act wants to #INCLUDE you in making a critical change in a student’s life. We will come #TOGETHER to create a powerful platform where everyone gets to tell their story. #INCLUDINGYOU

Opening Act workshops create a space and a stage for young people to seek and discover fresh ideas, new perspectives and bold ambitions. Through improv and storytelling, Opening Act students learn to connect their #STORIES to each other, their community and the world. Read more about our programs in over 57 NYC public high schools on 22 campuses in the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Manhattan, and find out more about the progress we’re making as we enter #YEAR2 of our ambitious 3 year Strategic Plan. 

What will it take for every young person to feel #INCLUDED?
