Youth Competency Training

In Nashville, the PG-13 Players write skits that tackle tough issues and engage the audience in conversation. These performances seek to help youth explore options and help skills needed to deal with real-life situations. For parents and professionals, these performances help develop skills in their communication and understanding of issues today’s youth face.

“Thank you so much for bringing the PG-13 Players. The medical students in attendance clearly got a lot out of the presentation and the role plays.”      - Professor

“Loved the training! Very beneficial to hear the teen point-of-view!”
