We leverage the transformational power of improv to advance social justice in San Diego.

Our group of improv “JEDIs” (justice, equity, and diversity through improv) bring the principles and practices of improvisation to people beyond the traditional improv comedy theater, focusing on those most in need of more connection, courage, and communication skills.

Our main goals are to:

  • Help leaders of non-profit organizations be more effective through free or low-cost improv team-building and leadership programs.
  • Bring improv to San Diego‚Äôs most vulnerable, especially teens and young adults, to help them develop skills, confidence, and social capital.
