Illumination Education Program
Drama Leader Training with ASAP
Created in 2002 in response to a civic outcry for help with the city's youth during the critical unsupervised hours after school, ASAP/After School Activities Partnerships provides high quality after school activities and resources to empower youth and strengthen communities throughout Philadelphia.
Since 2006, Lantern Theater Company has partnered with ASAP to train volunteers interested in becoming drama leaders in ASAP's Drama Program. These volunteers include parents, classroom teachers, and local teaching artists who run drama clubs for students in schools and community centers. Learn more about becoming an ASAP volunteer here.
Working with ASAP's Drama Program staff, the Lantern provides dedicated training sessions for these volunteers to aid them in their lesson planning, teaching actual games and activities, working on classroom management techniques, and more.
Upcoming FREE Training Workshop
Stay tuned! FREE training workshops for ASAP volunteers will be announced soon.
How To Register
Please register to attend these training sessions through ASAP/After School Activities Partnerships.
