About this grant

Since being established in 1957, the Flint Youth Theatre (FYT) has grown into a resident theater company that provides Flint area audiences with unique intergenerational programming and is nationally recognized as a model youth theater. Each year thousands of students are exposed to the theater and have the opportunity to pursue and develop their creative potential through its drama school and outreach efforts in area schools. FYT attracts multi-aged audiences to its theater productions, many of which are locally developed and intended to engage the community and stimulate thoughtful discussion on critical issues and historical topics.This grant will enable FYT to continue to provide quality programs and services that educate, inspire, entertain, and involve Flint students and the community in meaningful ways.
