Creative Arts: High School Literacy Initiative


We are a nonprofit organization at The City University of New York that uses the power of drama to inspire youth to learn.


With in-class workshops for students and professional development for educators, this residency includes various literacy skill-building activities, tailored to work with the classroom teacher's curriculum and always aligned with the NYS Common Core Standards for English Language Arts.

Through interactive strategies and drama, CAT captures a panoramic view of our society and zooms in on specific issues and behaviors that create obstacles in our lives. These workshops encourage participants, in a safe environment through a co-intentional process, to carefully examine the choices, decisions and consequences of everyday challenges, to raise awareness, discover solutions and promote problem solving, decision-making, critical thinking and self-advocacy skills, and to build the confidence of every participant.
