North Side and South Side Teens perform in a unique Improv Exchange

The Second City Outreach and Diversity presented "The After School Matters Teen Improv Exchange" on Friday, April 16 4:30 -6:00pm. Talented teens from Kenwood, Sullivan, Clark, Uplift, Schurz, Tilden and Taft High Schools have been honing their improv skills for the past 10 weeks in After School Matters programs. On Friday, they had their chance to make Chicago laugh at one of the most renowned improv theaters in the world. Check out these behind the scenes pics from this event where up to 180 teens improvised.

After School Matters is one of the nation's largest providers of out-of-school-time activities for teens in underserved communities, emphasizing the fields of arts, sports, science, technology and communications. The Second City Outreach & Diversity has been a partner with After School Matters for seven years teaching improvisation and writing to teens on the South Side.
