Fundamental to our programs is PLAY THEORY. Developed by our founder, LaRee Florence, the PLAY THEORY principles are based on improv rules and cognitive behavior therapy and teach participants to Be Present, Let Go and Play, Say Yes And, and Look Outward. PLAY THEORY changes lives and helps those who apply it to choose happiness. In a world where teenagers struggle with depression, anxiety, and selfishness, PLAY THEORY helps them learn to find joy and to spread it.  Read more about PLAY THEORY here.
