At the heart of CAT is our firm commitment to inspire youth to learn how to learn – a commitment that fuels our mission and unique CATalyst© Approach of interactive, issue-based drama.
The CATalyst© Approach applies drama principles, adapted to the unique environment of each classroom or community, to inspire participants to discover and foster their ability to learn. Our programs engage students and develop three life skills that are vital for them to reach their full potential:
- Critical thinking
- Social-emotional competency
With more than 38 years of experience working with New York City youth, CAT’s approach is internationally recognized as a model of educational innovation and effective learning.
