Calling all Champions of Community!

Support an incredible mentorship opportunity focused on teaching students how to use art as an instrument for social change. Performer, activist, and nonprofit leader Nicole Johnson—and 2010 graduate of RTKids’ high school PPAS Musical Theater Program—is leading a devised spoken word piece with six RTKids 7 th graders, empowering each student to give voice to the causes and communities that mean most to them.

Contribute a gift of ANY SIZE between now and Friday, May 21 and help us reach our $10,000 goal to underwrite this important work. Together, we can help our students use their platforms to be advocates and allies—and to build community.

Your support will be recognized in the Community Champion Giving Circle as a Passing It On event sponsor!

You and your fellow Champions will be invited to an intimate pre-show toast via Zoom on June
2nd with our student performers and mentors, receive a special shoutout from our kids, and a
behind-the-scenes video of the work you supported: mentorship-in-the-making.
