GBH promotes racial, gender, and economic empowerment.
We use a unique social justice education and mentoring program that tackles the obstacles they face and provides strategies to overcome them.
Building self-esteem and growing individual talents is how we empower young people to become leaders and activists in their communities.
GBH expands its theatre company each year through community-based programming in Manhattan and the Bronx. These groups meets weekly during the school year to develop as ensemble members and emerging artists.
Birthed in partnership with the U.S. State Department (through the Embassy in Port of Spain) and 2 Cents Movement, Girl Be Heard Trinidad and Tobago empowers teenage girls through theatre-making, spoken word, and song.
Girl Be Heard uses theater to lead young girls to find their strength and realize their potential by helping them express their anger, fears, hopes, and dreams so that they can channel those emotions into maturity and empowerment.
