A core program of Abrons Arts Center since the 1990s, Urban Youth Theater provides young New Yorkers the opportunity to learn about the components of theater making. Annually, a cohort of teen artists is mentored by a professional theater artist, who facilitates a curriculum of skill development workshops ranging from improvisation to scene development.

In addition to learning about theater making, UYT participants gain important transferable social and professional development skills, all while building community with other like minded teens.
