About Us

WE ARE IMPACT REP

We are youth activists who view the creative arts and leadership training as a way to develop ourselves and change the world in a positive way. We believe that we must be the message that we bring through hardwork, focus, discipline, unity and the principles of S.O.S. safe space, outstanding effort and service to our family friends and community.


WHAT IS IMPACT?

IMPACT Repertory Theatre Performance Company – Young people use current events and their own personal experience as material to explore the issues facing young people in America. The Repertory company performs in front of over 25,000 people per year at venues ranging from the United Nations Headquarters, NYC's City Hall, hospitals, public schools as well as penitentiaries. Members of the IMPACT Repertory team participate in the following programs:

Dance: Modern, Jazz, Traditional African, Hip-Hop and Ballet
Movement: Martial Arts, Stage Combat, Stepping and Pantomime
Music: Voice, Composition, Keyboards, and Musical Theatre
Drama: Improvisation, Scene Study, Monologues, Performance and Audition Techniques Leadership: Conflict Resolution, Human Rights Activism, Public Speaking, Drug Prevention, Career Planning, Community Organizing, Time Management and Personal Growth
Writing: Poetry, Songs, Essays, Short Stories, Plays and Movie Scripts

Impact Boot Camp – Prospective members experience a twelve-week intensive leadership training program to become members of IMPACT. Here they learn the fundamentals of leadership, service and public speaking. Impact Boot Camp trainees also learn the repertory performance material.

Impact Repertory Theatre Community Service Programs – IMPACT believes the first step of true leadership is service. Every year, our members visit nursing homes, participate in block clean ups and organize food drives to assist in the health of their community.

WHY WE IMPACT?

As a community, Harlem is known for its rich culture. From artists such as Langston Hughes to Ruby Dee and the legendary Malcom X, it has boasted a citizenry that has made great contributions to American culture. This multi-faceted community has also had its fair share of violence, poverty and crime. In this video, IMPACT co-founders Jamal Joseph and Voza Rivers explain why IMPACT Repertory Theatre is, at its core, a sanctuary for the many kids who have entered its walls, providing a safe space where they can explore their full potential without fear of stigma, ridicule or recrimination. Born from an incident of violence,IMPACT strives always to promote a positive paradigm: PEACE.

"KEEP A POSITIVE THOUGHT because a positive thought CANNOT BE DENIED."

A few Testemonials from our members and graduates who have faced challenges and gone on to bigger things while remaining part of the Impact Family.

Anthony MCkenzie

Impact Boot Camp 19

Anthony McKenzie thought he wasn't going to graduate but he turned to the arts and through Impact he found his calling and his philosophy in life. He is now a proud student attending SUNY Canton. I took all the values that I have received from Impact and apply them to succeeding in school. There was a time where he felt like giving up but learnt to "keep a positive thought because a positive thought cannot be denied." This is Impact's philosophy.

Yvette Brodrick

Impact Boot Camp 6

Yvette Brodrick -I joined Impact Repertory Theater at the age of 9. Impact was my escape from my everyday life
and I allowed Impact to help push me to tough time in my life including the lost of my mother. I graduated from College Park with a BS in Community Health. I am currently attending the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health pursing my Master's of Health Science with a concentration in Cancer Epidemiology.

Virginia Sarita

Impact Boot Camp 12

My mother was born and raised in the Dominican Republic so I really didn't have the same structure as other children. My life as a child was very strict and when joining Impact I finally found a place where I could express myself freely. In High school I had trouble with my academics. Impact not only encouraged me in my craft of singing but also pushed me to become a better student with the leadership training workshops that were also given each Saturday. Today I am a student at St Johns University and currently doing a semester program abroad. I studied in Paris, France, Seville, Spain, and now I'm in Rome, Italy. .

Hannah Tall's

Impact Boot Camp 8

My Impact experiences followed me as I worked for the Center for Community Action and Research (following the idea of service in our credo) and was an active member of WPAW, the radio station, among other things. As a recent grad of Pace University, I am currently in Bogotá, Colombia on A J. William Fulbright U.S. Student grant (or for short you can put, Fulbright grantee) as an English Teaching Assistant for Universidad Militay Nueva Granada. I am halfway through my grant, and will be returning to the States in June
