An annual summer program for youth who deal with the complexities of having a loved one incarcerated. This program was founded by Ciera Payton in order to provide a healthy artistic alternative for youth impacted by a parent’s or loved one’s absence due to addiction, incarceration or death. The students are challenged, each year to create an original production in the form of either a live play or film to present to the city of Los Angeles. To find out more please visit
