ACT has an agreement with Collin, Dallas and Denton Counties whereby we take youth that have been court-assigned to community service, providing a safe place for youth offenders to fufill their hours in a welcoming and educational environment. Interested parties may work (generally Monday-Saturday from 9AM to 9PM) at the theatre painting, building, cleaning, sewing, running errands, landscaping, and assisting in the technical aspects of theatre. ACT mentors youth offenders by pairing them with an adult supervisor who will monitor their activities and encourage their interest in the arts.
You do not need to call to make an appointment, but do call on the day you are coming to make sure someone will be here (972-881-3228).
ACT does not require any pre-screening or paper work prior to starting nor do we have training or require any fees or processing from workers. You will be supervised by staff when here.
While at ACT, workers are advised that while on the premises they are recorded by video surveillance and throughout their stay they are under video monitoring. There is no cell-phone use in the building and no fraternization with staff, actors or ACT families. Personal possessions should be left in your car, and you must check in and out with the staff - your hours will be logged and your sheets will be signed accordingly.
Participants are required to observe of our Code of Conduct listed on this site. ACT is happy to host your volunteer/community service hours and pledges to treat you with respect and tolerance, we expect you to do the same while in our home. Thank you!
