Just Like Me Exhibition of Talent: EXHIBITION OF TALENT!

2022’s Just Like Me Camp was a big success, and now it’s time to look forward to 2023! The Just Like Me 3 week camp for 15 – 17-year-old teens, completed its 11th year and is hosted by The Performers Academy and Family Support Services of North Florida. This camp is changing at-risk teens’ lives through the power of the arts and shares the power with the community at a free Exhibition of Talent.

Just Like Me was developed for teens in foster care who are preparing to age-out. The teens learn to use the arts as a means for self-expression empathy and social self-assurance. Led by professional artists, the experience provides teens with creative outlets such as acting, writing, dancing, singing, painting, and videography. Many of the teens have never had any experience on stage, but the final (and free) performance is nothing short of inspirational.

For our 11th Annual Event we hosted our final performance at the Florida Theatre. We will soon be announcing where 2023’s event will be (the beautiful historical landmark will be going through repairs). Join us for next year’s fabulous free event and see what these incredible teens create in a mere three weeks!
