Youth Unscripted is Urban Improv's after school program for high school students. During the school year Youth Unscripted meets once a week to expose inner city high school students to the Urban Improv method and help them become peer leaders in their schools and communities.
"Working with Youth Unscripted has definitely been an exceptional experience. The team of youth, with the direction of Merle, continues to awe me. Their acting skills are outstanding, and they understand how important this work is for young adults. This model is one of the most effective ways to reach underserved populations and it needs to be expanded. It helps nurture youth into responsible members of their communities. I will continue to be an example, and an advocate, for Youth Unscripted."
