SGT’s Traveling Troupe, Student Council, and Ambassador Program feature our students with special needs as well as peer mentors/ buddies and are designed to take the skills learned in our theatre programs out into the community.

Traveling Troupe

Our Traveling Troupe Program, which features our students with special needs as well as mentors, is designed to showcase the talents and abilities of our children in a larger setting – out in the community.  It not only raises awareness about SGT but also helps us achieve our mission of eradicating stereotypes that place limitations on our children.  We are working hard to ensure that these students have every opportunity to perform out in the community.

Any SGT student or mentor is invited to join the Traveling Troupe and perform previously learned repertoire at various community events! It not only raises awareness about SGT but also helps us achieve our mission of eradicating stereotypes that place limitations on individuals with special needs.

Have a place in mind for the Traveling Troupe to perform?  Call 847-564-7704 or email us.

Past Performances include:

  • SGT 5k Runs
  • Down Syndrome Buddy Walk
  • Inclusive Theatre Festival
  • Pinstripes Family Event
  • Disability Awareness Workshops

Student Council

SGT’s student council is made up of students and peer mentors/ buddies who come together to develop leadership skills including team work, creative problem solving, and public speaking. The student council works together to plan social events, and community awareness events including SGT’s 5k Runs. SGT students and mentors are given the opportunity to take the skills they’ve developed through theatre programs out into the community.

Have any ideas for the Student Council? Call 847.564.7704 or email us.

Ambassador Program

Through the Ambassador Program, SGT students are given opportunities to represent SGT in public speaking venues throughout the Chicagoland area. Ambassadors also help SGT staff facilitate disability awareness workshops for partnering schools and community groups. SGT ambassadors are great advocates for themselves and the special needs community!
