Launched in 2009, RCT4TEENS is a proven expanded arts education program offered annually that focuses on relevant and challenging issues youth face. Each RCT4TEENS performance is accompanied by youth education and outreach workshops that connect our youth to agency health professionals addressing the issues at hand in talkback sessions; teacher SOL-compliant study guides supplying activities for pre and post show classroom time; and take-away community resource materials that give young people the tools they need to reach out when in crisis.

Evaluations conducted in 2011—2014 proved significant statistical change in behavior and perception of risk for young people participating in RCT4TEENS; our past project efforts have been recognized by the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, MADD, and by Roanoke City Public Schools. RCT has created collaborative project partnerships with PCRC, RAYSAC, Roanoke City and County Public Schools, Family Service of Roanoke Valley, Carilion Clinic, Lewis Gale Medical Center, Roanoke City Police Department, Mental Health America of Roanoke Valley, and local health professionals.
