New York City Children’s Theater programs cultivate children’s growth in the areas of emotional intelligence, community building, and responsible decision-making. The result is empathetic, creative and independent thinkers who make a positive impact on their world.

Are you having challenging conversations about big topics with young people? We’re here to help with videos, activities, and resources for families.
