Parent and Guardian Panel

CFCArts strives to create a Parent and Guardian Panel composed of parents and guardians who are diverse in many ways, including but not limited to: location, race/ethnicity, education, socio-economic status, and age/grade level of child/children.

Panel members have the opportunity to…

  • Help shape the future of CFCArts youth theatre programs by weighing in on things like show selections, program procedures, extra opportunities, class and camp offerings, and more.
  • Make and discuss suggestions for the CFCArts youth theatre programs with fellow parents and guardians, and CFCArts leadership.
  • Receive an official CFCArts badge, complimentary tickets to most CFCArts productions, media opportunities, and other perks.

Being a part of the Parent and Guardian Panel involves the following commitments:

 

  • Being an active member of the Parent/Guardian Panel from date of admission (early to mid July 2024) through the end of July 2025 (roughly one calendar year.)
  • Attending bi-monthly meetings (every other month) to lend insight and suggestions regarding CFCArts Youth Theatre programs in a structured way, brainstorm and plan fundraising and promotional events, etc.
  • Volunteering to assist with the planning, running, and promotion of all CFCArts Youth Theatre fundraising events. This includes the Annual Summer Celebration (July 20, 2024 and mid to late July 2025), the Annual Gala (September 27, 2024), at least two Youth Theatre Production front of house volunteer positions per year (one per semester), and at least two Parent and Caregiver Support Meetings (new for 2024-2025!) per year (one per semester.)
  • Advocating for CFCArts Youth Theatre programs within the Central Florida community and your sphere of influence.
  • Having at least one student active in CFCArts Youth Theatre Programs throughout the entire 2024-2025 school year, in at least one program per semester.

After moving to South Florida in high school, she was fortunate to catch some great Broadway productions like Cats, Miss Saigon and Phantom of the Opera and she was hooked. Uzma is looking forward to contributing to CFCArts.
