Join me in supporting OPENING ACT!

Claire Florian

Hi friends!

I am thrilled to serve as Co-Chair of Opening Act's Social Board this year, and hope you will join me in supporting our incredible students. Opening Act gives students at 51 of NYC’s most high-need public high schools (schools where as few as 33% of students graduate in four years) opportunities to develop leadership, community, and commitment through its free After-School Theater Program. Our students are smart, artistic, dynamic, motivated teenagers, and you can help them to #DOBIG things with their lives.

Opening Act doesn't just teach our students how to act on stage - it instills transferrable life skills to help them succeed in whatever paths they choose to pursue. Opening Act students learn to leverage their own unique voices, and that their perspectives matter. After participating in Opening Act programs, 93% of students say that OA motivated them to attend school; 97% say their self-confidence increased; and 98% say they learned tools they can use for a future career. For many students, being a part of the Opening Act community is a driving force that encourages them to attend school, graduate on time, and pursue higher education.

Opening Act’s groundbreaking annual online fundraising campaign, the #POWEROF10, is your chance to not only help our students #DREAMBIG, but for you to #BEBIG and #DOBIG. Your small donation can create that critical moment that changes an Opening Act student’s life.

Our goal is to raise $100,000 in 10 days from October 18 - October 27. THANK YOU for supporting this incredible organization - together we can have a powerful impact!

Many thanks,
