The Unusual Suspects gives Los Angelenos the opportunty to have fun in a creative atmosphere by mentoring participants in theatre programs at school sites in South Los Angeles and the Northeast San Fernando Valley, as well as probation camps throughout LA County.
In the Writing program, students create an original play that culminates in a staged reading, performed by professional actors. In the Performance program, students mount a full theatrical production of the play that they have written.
The needs of volunteers vary from role to role but we are looking for volunteers to donate at least 4 hours of their time.
We require all volunteer photographers bring their own equipment needed to support the performances and workshops. No equipment will be provided.
Of course! You will be working alongside current US staff that will walk you through working in the US office.
While experience and/or interest in theatre, acting or writing are helpful, it is not necessary. We also welcome Mentors with other interests, such as social work, psychology, community development, and education.
Keep an eye out on our website and social media pages for upcoming events and volunteer needs.
Our programs take place in middle and high schools in South LA, San Fernando, and Pacoima, and at probation camps throughout LA County. You’ll need your own transportation!
All mentors will need to pass background checks and TB tests. Mentors supporting our incarcerated youth in the juvenile detention centers will also need advanced approval from probation. US works with all of our mentors to ensure proper paperwork is submitted and approved.
