Make a Difference
Become a Mentor
Mentoring is the best way to get involved at Barrier-Free and involves direct, on-the-ground work. By taking on the role as a mentor, you are a part of the creative, inclusive theater process. Mentors assist actors on and offstage during rehearsals and shows, model appropriate social interactions, and build deep, meaningful relationships with our actors. Mentoring is the most rewarding, joy-filled work and a great way to give back to the community.
Mentoring involves committing to at least one Inclusive Theater Company and attending rehearsals from 6:30-8PM, September - March.
