In 1998, The Unusual Suspects first brought their uniquely powerful style of healing to the boys incarcerated at Central Juvenile Hall.

Since those early workshops, thousands have been challenged, believed in, and provided unimaginable opportunity through our programs. This month, we are honored to be returning to the facility where it all began.  On top of that, LA County Probation Department has asked us to work in three additional sites this year

If we’re being honest, while we are incredibly grateful for the opportunity to expand our work with incarcerated youth, it was unexpected. There are so many kids that need us, but we can’t do it alone.  We need to raise $15,000 to close the gap in support of these programs and are asking for your help today!

Your contribution gives dozens of incarcerated teens the opportunity to grow, trust and write their own future this year.

Can they count on you?

REMINDER: Don’t forget to tag your donation with “Central Juvenile Hall” under special instructions!
The Unusual Suspects Theatre Company believes every young person deserves to be seen, heard and known. We work deeply to empower the hardest to reach communities to tell their stories together leading to a sense of belonging, and the building of stronger families and communities.
