Snapshots teaches students the value of a high self-worth. High self-esteem in teens promotes emotional and physical safety by combating dangerous personal behaviors and belief systems. We educate students about relevant social issues including eating disorders, domestic violence, bullying, sexuality, and drug abuse, providing snapshots of these epidemics in theatrical forms. 

Our thought provoking plays are researched, original, professionally approved scripts performed by professional actors. These insightful, age appropriate plays show the dangers of participating in behaviors, situations, and relationships that result in self-destructive behavior. It’s our focus to educate students on the importance of self-respect, personal boundaries, and healthy choices as the foundation for positive self-esteem. We end our productions with a question and answer session between the students and the actors. The actors are prepared to answer student questions with scripted responses that provide the available services, resources, and procedures for students seeking help. It’s our belief that students need both the realization that they have the power to succeed alongside the education of warning signals, dangers, and available services to combat self-destructive situations in order to succeed.

It is our goal to education and instill positive self-esteem in students.

Did you know?…

“It is reported that low self-esteem is actually a thinking disorder in which an individual views himself as inadequate, unworthy, unlovable and/or incompetent. Once formed, this negative view of self permeates every thought, producing faulty assumptions and ongoing self-defeating behavior.

It is our goal to support the need for strength in a positive manner.

“75% of girls with low-self esteem reported engaging in negative activities such as disordered eating, cutting, bullying, smoking or drinking when feeling badly about themselves (compared to 25% of girls with high self-esteem).”

It is our goal to promote self-confidence.

Each program’s goal entails the importance of knowledge, boundaries, and choices that lead to positive self-esteem. We do not promote victim or victimizer stereotypes. It is our goal to instill personal responsibility and resources as a means to inner strength, health, happiness, and emotional and physical safety all within a framework of age appropriate, M.S.W. reviewed and approved plays performed by trained actors.
