An experience that delivers inspirational messages of hope and love from young people to young people.
Messages Which Are Hopeful!
MWAH! Performing Arts Troupe
A catalyst for assisting schools and their surrounding communities in a collaborative effort to empower young people with the knowledge, courage, and strength to deal with life’s personal challenges, thereby changing and saving lives.
MWAH!: Committed to meeting the needs of young people
A key concept in this effort is a ‘three-point shot’
- Awareness of a problem,
- Seeking help for it,
- And then getting whatever help is needed.
This collaborative process may include social media videos as well as issues-oriented school presentations highlighting the helping process in place at any given school.
Stories from us!
As an alternative to school-based performances, the troupe is seeking student-generated videos on social-emotional learning (SEL) topics relevant to teens’ lives. Students, parents, teachers, and counselors will be able to access the videos online at home and at school via MWAH!’s Web site and social media accounts.

Measurable results are the name of the game
‘The MWAH! presentation was perhaps the most inspirational assembly I’ve ever attended. During lunch, I noticed that the school cafeteria was quieter and calmer than usual. Even a few hours after the assembly I think students were continuing to process everything they heard during the performance. The troupe was able to touch on such serious topics as depression, suicide, substance-abuse issues, interpersonal conflict, and so many other areas in a short amount of time. I’m truly impressed with the dedication and high standards that everyone from the MWAH! troupe brought to the performance.’Brian BartozDriver Education & American Government Teacher and Scholastic Bowl Coach
