Acting For A Greater Cause

Headline Mentors & Performing Arts present free "Life Skills & Acting Classes" for ages 10 to 17

Fridays, 4:15 p.m. to 5:45 p.m.  Acting For A Greater Cause
Headline Mentors & Performing Arts Inc. is partnering with the Burleson Public Library to bring their
Acting For A Greater Cause program to our community. Acting For A Greater Cause is a curriculum-based program that consists of mentoring strategies that help promote self-worth, self-esteem, time-management, educational awareness, and college readiness. The program takes the methods of acting, along with other educational outlets, and combines them into an artistic approach to capture the attention of today's youth. There is no charge to enroll in this program.

The Acting For A Greater Cause program will assess the needs of each child and offer methods to address these issues through individual and group activities. Classes will incorporate anger management, time management, educational awareness, community involvement, self-esteem, self-worth, personal and public relations, coping skills, and other topics associated with helping youth become successful.

Acting For a Greater Cause is more than just acting; it's a program that forms life-long friends and relationships. The program also benefits the community as it provides a recital that consists of a stage play created and directed by youth. The youth will use creative writing skills, and are encouraged to write their own stage play. At the beginning of the program, youth are advised that the best stage play will be chosen and used at the recital. This motivates them to remain in the program and stay successfully involved. They will engage in every aspect of preparing for the stage, which includes directing, producing, managing and acting.

Headline Mentors and Performing Arts' (HMPA) mission is to capture the awareness of individuals at risk of not fulfilling their potential goals by offering them guidance, counseling, leadership, and self-awareness through the use of performing arts.
