Looking to join an excellent arts program for teens in Detroit? At Teen HYPE, we use theater arts to guide teens into becoming leaders. Learn more.

Teen HYPE empowers urban teens to discover their true talents, interests and potential for a bright future. Using the principles of personal, peer and community, Teen HYPE molds the whole person while teaching young people that they have options.
   
By promoting self-expression through the arts, teens are invited to write and act in annual plays that relate to unsafe sex, teen pregnancy, addiction and other poignant topics. Our other programs, some which take place during class time at Detroit schools, also raise awareness about sexual-health, drug abuse and unhealthy relationships.
   
As a peer educator, you’ll have many opportunities to open your mind, make new friends and enjoy positive ways to live. In addition to writing and acting in an annual community play that addresses social issues that affect youth, you will plan and participate in service learning projects, and attend field trips to speak at organizations throughout the Detroit area.
   
To apply, you must:

  • Be at least 13 years old.
  • Have an interest in the arts and serving your community.
  • Have reliable transportation to and from meetings and events.

    About 2 months ago I went to my first teen hype concert. It… Was…. AWESOME!!! There were dancers, singers, rappers, actors, and they were all kids my age. At that moment I knew I wanted to be a part of teen hype.
