Professional Development

A vital part of CAT’s mission is to share the interactive, student-centered teaching methods that make such an impact with young people, ensuring that our work doesn’t end when our actor-teachers leave the classroom. To that end, CAT has been providing professional development opportunities for educators and other youth development professionals for decades. CAT’s robust, practical workshops are enjoyable, hands-on, and tailored to address pertinent topics within the greater NYC community.
