Joshua’s Stage uses The Creative Outlet Method™. The Creative Outlet Method™ is the process used to enhance every student’s unique abilities while providing the opportunity to demonstrate their creativity and to increase their self-confidence.

To foster and maintain a warm and welcoming environment for every student, qualified staff and volunteers are trained in The Creative Outlet Method™ and they will:

·        Develop and maintain a strong, positive relationship with every student.

·        Celebrate every student’s unique abilities while providing positive praise to every student.

·        Provide an environment for every student to feel successful, and recognize student accomplishments by using our “I Feel Good Applause”.

·        Support students so that they encourage each other to achieve their best.

·        Create and conduct activities with confidence, patience, flexibility, and with our passion for theatre arts, dance, digital photography, or filmmaking.

Requirements
Volunteers must be able to pass a background check. Volunteers should have experience working with children with special needs, and a passion and/or strong interests for the fine arts.
