Interactive Theater as a Catalyst for Conflict Resolution
an online resource guide
For our Team Service Project, the Youth Empowerment Project (YEP) Team of the North Carolina Public Allies Class of 1998 used popular theater to develop deep and lasting relationships with a group of five young people who live at Lutheran Family Services' Opportunity House in Durham.
Twice a week for 22 weeks, YEP team members spent evenings with the young people at Opportunity House, using interactive theater techniques to enact everyday life challenges and practice creative, nonviolent solutions to conflict.

From our experiences, the YEP team has created this online resource guide demonstrating the YEP models of relationship-building and interactive conflict resolution. We hope you'll find it engaging, helpful, and fun!
