Burning Barriers, Building Bridges Youth Theatre (B4YT) was formed with a collaboration between Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and two international fellows at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota. Their shared vision was an community engagement program to allow Liberian youth to express themselves through the arts. The 300 children involved in the program write and perform their original plays to voice their concerns about their communities through theatre, which contributes to community peace-building efforts. The 2012 production was a tribute to the Liberia Children’s Law, in which youth participants aimed to spread the news about the law and educate other children about their rights. The organization is led by Jasmine Blanks. Read an article about Jasmine and learn more about the B4 Youth Theatre.
