VCT4TEENS

Launched in 2009, VCT4TEENS is a proven expanded arts education program that focuses on relevant and challenging social issues for teens. Each VCT4TEENS performance is accompanied by youth education and outreach workshops that connect students to agency health professionals addressing the issues at hand in talkback sessions, and take-away community resource materials that give young people the tools they need to reach out when in crisis.

Evaluations conducted since 2011 show significant statistical change in behavior and perception of risk for young people participating in VCT4TEENS; our past project efforts have been recognized by the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, MADD, The New York Times, and by Roanoke City Public Schools. VCT has created collaborative project partnerships with PCRC, RAYSAC, YOVASO, Roanoke City and County Public Schools, Family Service of Roanoke Valley, Carilion Clinic, Lewis Gale Medical Center, Roanoke City Fire/EMS, Roanoke City Police Department, Mental Health America of Roanoke Valley, and local health professionals.

TESTIMONIALS

OUT OF THE SHADOWS

The authentic letters and snapshots of other teens’ experiences throughout the performance made the show even more relatable and real. I have no doubt that the impact of the performances will continue to positively affect kids in our community.
Brandi Pendleton Brown, Parent & Teacher
It was a fantastic show! From the actual production to the interactive forum, it was all so informative and is helping to destigmatize mental illness. You will walk away armed with new information and resources.

I’m so glad my son and I went. It really opened up the conversation between us. Thank you!
