Steeped in our nationally recognized Neighborhood Bridges philosophy, the CTC Community Engagement team creates models that arts organizations, schools and educators utilize to animate teaching and learning and develop critical thinking through creative writing, storytelling and theatre arts. The Neighborhood Bridges philosophy informs each of our Community Engagement programs: the 31 week school age Neighborhood Bridges (currently serving grades 2-8), Early Bridges (serving ages 3- 5) and Theatre and Literacy Partnership (serving second grade). Our programming exists to promote accessibility and to deepen engagement with teachers and students locally and nation-wide.CLICK HERE for Neighborhood Bridges
