Participants demonstrate an understanding of how to cope with challenging life events such as bullying, self-control, hard work, and the value of money through the development of the script as well as the performance for the audience. Participants demonstrate the ability to work effectively in a team environment.

Participants demonstrate a knowledge of the artistic qualities of acting, directing, and production design by working with Mr. Anderson, who has an experienced background in youth development and theater. Surveys will be provided to all audience members. Peer evaluations will take place every other month. Mr. Anderson will evaluate participants progress bi-monthly based on goals and deadlines in regard to a production role. Each performance will address specific themes: bullying, self-control, hard work, and the value of money. The participants will first brainstorm each of these themes and will work with Mr. Anderson to determine coping strategies based on their real life experiences. At each performance a survey will be available for the parents and their children to fill out to evaluate what the audience learned from each play. Each Teen Advisory Group board member and alternate will lead two different committees in two different production roles. The participants will speak to schools in the surrounding area to recruit other teens to participate on a committee to create the plays. There will be five peer evaluations every other month that Mr. Anderson will use to help resolve issues within any committee and keep them working as a team. The participants will work in four different areas of the production; directing, stage management, costumes/props, and set design. The participants will meet with Mr. Anderson two times a month from October through May. At each session, Mr. Anderson will evaluate their progress based on goals that have been assigned to each committee based on how each role works in a real production.
