Mentoring Program with Stand Up with Comedy


  • Bronx Prep Middle School 3872 3rd Avenue The Bronx, NY, 10457 United States (map)

Stand Up With Comedy goes into under-served schools or organizations and implements an 8 week class that teaches kids creativity, self-confidence, and self-expression through stand-up comedy. Each program is run by a lead mentor and additional volunteer mentors and ends in a Final Show where the young comedians get to perform the material they worked on in class

Mentors don’t need to be comedians, just people who are interested in working with kids and eager to give back. The curriculum is very self-explanatory and the role of the volunteer mentor is just to be a sounding board for students as they write their own material.

The time commitment is one hour a week for 8 weeks starting on October 1st . Details on the upcoming class are below,
