Advot means ripples in the Hebrew language. Change, like the ripples, starts small but lead to overwhelmingly positive transformations.
Through a variety of unique interactive programs, participants become better communicators, learn how to discover and then declare their own self-worth. As well as develop the capacity to exhibit greater kindness and compassion; first for themselves and then with others. We believe individuals have a right to live free of fear, enjoy healthy relationships, and be respected for who they are.
Together we can, and will make the world a better place. We invite you to join us.

Relationships 101 uses theater exercises, creative writing, music, and dance
to explore healthy relationships, establish communication skills, and nurture personal growth.
Relationships 101 can be facilitated at school, probation, and community sites, as well as in collaboration with nonprofit organizations. To date, we've facilitated the program at Fairfax High School, San Pedro High School, and LA County Probation at Camps Scudder, Scott, Gonzales, and Miller.
Currently the Performing Arts Program is using our "Relationships 101" curriculum to serve young girls in juvenile detention at LA County's Camp Kenyon Scudder in a 10-week course that culminates with a final presentation, written and performed by the participants.
With each group of participants, we continue to see theater become a rehearsal for life, a stage for these youths to experiment, explore, and find ways to live as the best versions of themselves.
Out & Up Alumni Program
The Out & Up Alumni Program provides graduates of Relationships 101
with guidance, community, and a space to continue nurturing their personal, creative expression.
One to two times a month we meet in varying settings - always over a meal, sometimes at cultural outings, and others anywhere the group can write, perform, play, and converse. Together we identify short-term needs and set long-term goals for success.
We try to provide participants with the academic and professional resources they need to move forward, while exposing them to cultural enrichment experiences.
