CYT Programs

Get involved in CYT beyond the stage! CYT Tri-Valley has many programs in place that foster theater arts in the community and we’d love for you to take part in the various initiatives that CYT has going on.

Decathlon

The Decathlon Award recognizes exceptional CYT students who have demonstrated a love for theater by pursuing a well-rounded education in the theater arts and who have exhibited a character consistent with CYT values. The award includes a certificate of recognition, as well as a personal letter of recommendation from the CYT National Board of Directors.

HYPE

High School Youth Pursuing Excellence (HYPE) is a leadership training group designed to challenge and guide the advanced students of CYT to be leaders inside and outside of CYT. Getting involved by serving the community around them, continuing to grow as an individual, and committing themselves to excellence in all they do are the core components of this CYT program.
CYT wants to ensure that students everywhere have an opportunity to experience the wonderful world of theater. CYT@school is a low-cost after school program that supports performing arts training in public and private schools.
The CYT@school program consists of eight weeks of drama, voice, and dance training which offers sound theater art instruction while also building character. All participating students perform in an end-of-session Showcase that is literature-based while still being very popular with students. Our teachers are enthusiastic positive role models who lead and inspire.
 

My CYT Story

The National My CYT Story Competition invites students ages 12-18 to share their CYT Story with the world. Winners are first selected locally at the Branch level, and then each Branch winner moves on and is entered into the National Competition. Winners receive prizes and national recognition at the annual CYT EXPO.
