At SGT our mission is to provide a unique, creative drama experience enabling personal growth, break down stereotypes to disabilities within the community at large. We use the stage as a platform to teach social skills, speech & language development & increase self awareness. Each student is paired with a typically developing peer mentor & together they learn lines, dances & perform on stage!
As students with special needs, we love performing & having a place to hang out with our friends. As mentors, we like making a difference through the bonds of friendship. As teachers we see speech, language skills, social skills, and self confidence develop on the stage & transfer into our students’ everyday lives.
