Comenzamos con un amor por la comedia de pie y un deseo de usar esta forma de arte para educar, capacitar y enseñar a los niños en comunidades desatendidas que sus ideas importan.
A través de clases grupales y mentores uno a uno, los estudiantes aprenden los fundamentos básicos de la comedia de pie y el arte de su propio stand-up conjunto. Al final de cada sesión, los estudiantes realizan su material en el escenario.
Hemos probado el programa en 2016 en la New Charter School de Los Angeles con 2 clases de estudiantes de secundaria muy valientes y esperamos poder ampliar la organización en más escuelas y rangos de edad.
Alison Tigerman is a recent graduate of the University of Southern California, where she obtained her Master of Social and Community Planning from the Sol Price School of Policy, Planning, and Development. Prior to attending graduate school, her professional career and volunteer experience focused on the areas of community engagement, civic activism, and public health. Her interest in these areas was ignited in the early years of her academic career at the University of Illinois where she was a member of the college’s Habitat for Humanity chapter and took part in the East St. Louis Action Research project. After obtaining her Bachelor of Arts in Urban and Regional Planning, she moved to Los Angeles and continued to pursue these interests in her professional endeavors. Working with programs such as Mending Kids International and Cedars Sinai Medical Center’s COACH for Kids, and interning with local organizations such as the Arthritis Foundation and City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks, she gained a deeper understanding of the need for open mindedness and thoughtful engagement within communities. Alison currently resides in Los Angeles.
