School Programs

In these these one-of-a-kind programs, comedian coaches work as visiting artist instructors to give youth from 9-17 years of age the tools and perspectives to better face the challenges life throws at them. Stand Up For Student Well-Being works in schools to support youth by sharing resiliency strategies for stress and anxiety.

This camp takes place once per week, for an hour, over a six week period. Then three additional weeks are spent with a smaller group of students preparing for the culminating Showcase, and the Showcase performance itself. The classroom is transformed into a writer’s room, a comedy club, and an open learning space. Coaches collaborate with teachers in assisting students to write and perform.
