About The Manton Avenue Project

MAP’S GOALS AND OBJECTIVES: The mission of The Manton Avenue Project is to unleash the creative voices and unique potential of children living in Providence’s Olneyville neighborhood, one of the city’s lowest income neighborhoods. Through The Manton Avenue Project (MAP), underserved children have the opportunity to discover their talents as they develop their playwriting skills and work one-on-one with professional theatre artists to create original theater. MAP believes that theatre is a specifically powerful vehicle for personal and social change. Through playmaking, we nurture each child’s capacity for success, helping them believe in the value of their own ideas and increasing their ability to navigate through life’s challenges. By respecting young people's ideas and presenting those ideas to public audiences, The Manton Avenue Project cultivates their resilience and improves their self-efficacy, both indicators of Positive Youth Development that lead to long-term success in adulthood, including healthy relationships, community connections, and economic self-sufficiency.
