Summer program providing valuable experience to vulnerable youths

A program aimed at local youths is a safe environment where participants can express themselves, explore their hopes and beliefs, and nurture their creativity, says a UWindsor student helping to lead its daily sessions on campus.

Changing the Odds: Community Transformation through the Arts provides vulnerable youth with six weeks of training in theatre and related skills, but it’s about more than the arts, says senior drama leader Ashley Baez Abreu.

Graduating from the UWindsor drama program, combined with her professional experiences since, has given Meaghen Quinn (BFA Acting 2001) an ability to connect with prospective students—and their parents.

Now an instructor in the School of Dramatic Art, she loves being able to work with her colleagues and mentors to recruit new students.

“I had a positive experience when I was a student,” she says. “It's a privilege to be teaching here and in a position that allows me to promote the School of Dramatic Art.”

Changing the Odds: Community Transformation Through the Arts program has engaged 19 Windsor teens in experiences with a view to expanding their horizons through drama, music, dance and art.Changing the Odds: Community Transformation Through the Arts program has engaged 19 Windsor teens in experiences with a view to expanding their horizons through drama, music, dance and art.
