Calling All Actors!

If you are an aspiring actor this is the perfect opportunity for you. The Preventing AIDS through Live Movement and Sound (PALMS) Project is a program of the Public Health Management Corporation (PHMC). The PALMS project provides HIV prevention education to adolescents and young adults in Philadelphia through improvisational, interactive theatrical performances presented by trained volunteer peer actors. The Project aims to increase knowledge about HIV/AIDS transmission and prevention and reduce high-risk sexual behaviors by enhancing self-efficacy and negotiation skills for condom use.

The PALMS Acting Troupe will consist of trained volunteer peer actors between the ages of 18-35. Actors should have exceptional improvisational skills and the ability to portray characters between ages 16-25. Performances will portray real life situations that adolescents and young adults contend with on a daily basis. ALL actors are compensated for each performance and additionally; actors are given a stipend for monthly meetings.

Requirements: must be personable, professional, articulate, and able to work with difficult-to-reach youth.
