Broadway For All believes the most talented artists are almost always the most generous. Perhaps the most unique aspect of Broadway For All is pay it forward philosophy where our high school participants practice public service by mentoring our middle school participants, one-on-one (helping them adjust to a rigorous conservatory, coaching them for their classes, or even creating an independent reading book club). Students who are at an advanced reading level are encouraged to increase their "cultural capital" by reading a complex dramatic text (i.e. an Ionesco or Beckett title) to help them become more competitive candidates for arts high schools and college conservatory programs.
