Support our Go Fund Me campaign to put stipends into the hands of our youth participants!

Funded by the California Arts Council's Re-Entry Through the Arts grant, and led by the master teaching artists of Agency Arts and the UCLA Visual and Performing Arts Education (VAPAE) program, ACT TWO is a platform for young people of our community who have been impacted by the juvenile justice system to use the performing arts - theater, dance, poetry, music, and more - to tell their own original stories onstage.

This holiday season, we're asking you to support the chance for a system-impacted young person in Los Angeles to participate in the ACT TWO program.  Your gift of $25 gives one of these extraordinary young artists the opportunity to learn the performing arts skills they need to tell their stories and bring their voices to the Hollywood stage.  Your gift of $375 supports the entire ACT TWO cast in participating in a workshop all together... and your gift of $750 supports a full week of paid programming for the entire cast!  Donate in someone else's name and we'll give you a certificate to give to that person at the holidays, letting them know that your holiday gift to them is the support of a young person's empowering and transformative artistic experience.

We serve individuals at every facet of the cycle of recidivism.

Diversion programming is about empowering people to make positive choices to self-determine their own life path. Agency Arts believes that all community members deserve the opportunity to engage in high-quality arts-education programming: to experience the therapeutic benefits of the creative process; to feel the pride and accomplishment of artistic production; to develop the creative and critical thinking skills that support the vision of alternative futures; and to re-route the pipeline of their lives from incarceration to education, artistry, leadership, and community.
