"As a psychologist who has specialized in working with teenagers for many years, I have been extremely impressed by the way SELF has contributed to building upon the self-esteem of the young people you serve! My daughter has participated in your theater productions and classes for several years, and I am simply awestruck by your commitment for integrating lessons in core values with theater instruction! Not an easy task! Thank you!"
                    -Larry M Kahan, PhD

"Tracy: I just wanted to drop a quick note thanking you for all of the hard work you do with the kids!  How you do it we will  never know! 

Marissa has an absolutely incredible time and it does so much for her confidence.  Kim and I have realistic and modest expectations for her but she loves performing so much we’ll support her love of theater every way we can.  Having a positive role model for her such as yourself just bolsters this and we’ll have her participate as much as her busy schedule will allow."

Self-Esteem for Life Foundation
(SELF) is 501 C 3 non-profit organization dedicated to building self-esteem and leadership among young people through the performing arts. Youth grades 2-college have the opportunity to take a class or create a theatre production, and can audition for singing, acting and/or dancing roles. Those not interested in performing can work backstage, on sets, costumes, lighting, sound, and more.  We offer volunteer internships for those interested in directing, music direction, teaching, and production management.
