Specialty Programs

We believe Positive Youth Development begins when youth have the opportunity to engage in areas of interest such as, music, film, writing and performing. At LifeWorks we offer Specialty programs in these fields to not only enhance their skill level, but youth will also learn collaboration, develop in self-expression and gain confidence.

OutSet

OutSet is The Young Filmmakers Project from the Los Angeles LGBT Center and OutFest. Each year, 15 diverse LGBTQ+ fellows between the ages of 16-24 are selected to participate over the course of 6 months in a storytelling and filmmaking lab focused on collaboration and mastering a successful production. OutSet’s mission is to empower and educate diverse LGBTQ+ young adults to tell their stories through film.

TheatreWorks

For many youth theatre can be an outlet of self-expression. In our theatre program youth will explore acting exercises, improvisation, and playwriting techniques to create an original piece of theatre that illuminates the experiences of our diverse community.
