Marin Shakespeare Company provides programs for low-income, underserved, and system-impacted youth through a variety of programs that include:

Social Justice Program at Marin Community School

As a part of our work to support these youth, we created this short documentary film of interviews with men at San Quentin State Prison who participate in Shakespeare at San Quentin classes. The men talk about being a teenager and what they wish they knew as teenagers. It is a gift of wisdom and compassion from these mentors to today’s Youth.  “What We Wish We Knew As Teenagers” : A 49-minute documentary by David Wayne White of interviews with men from Shakespeare at San Quentin discussing the special challenges of being a teenager.

We also recommend viewing “Probation” a documentary made by students from Marin’s Community School as part of our JumpStARTs program, funded by the California Arts Council.
