Get Lit visits the ranch!
April 11, 2023
Get Lit is a non-profit organization that works with youth to help them better understand and express the power that they have through poetry.
They have different curriculums, programs, and events for people to join.
The Get Lit players visited the ranch to perform both classical poems and their poems in response to the classical poem in the Little Theater.
Get Lit Associate Director of programming says, “I just want you to see there are different people up here expressing themselves and sharing what they have inside and maybe this could be for you too!”
The Get Lit Players consist of ages middle school to highschool. There main mission is to help teens better express themselves in a way through words.
It is well known that teenagers have a lot of emotions that they go through and having an outlet to let them out in an artistic way can be helpful, Get Lit understands this.
Get Lit player says, “I really love having a chance to write about my feelings and things that I am not able to talk about in other settings.”
This path could be for you too! Even if you have a hard time speaking in front of people, Get Lit has programs to help you build these communication skills.
Get Lit player says, “I was put into a poetry class and in the beginning, I was kind of mad but my teacher really encouraged me and that started my love for poetry because I didn’t really like it before but now I really love it.”
The Get Lit Players brought so much passion and emotion to their performances and to the Ranch! Next time you are looking for an outlet to express yourself and create change consider Get Lit!
