ITS Student Leadership Program
The International Thespian Society’s Student Leadership Program is a pathway to leadership at whatever level you choose — troupe, chapter, or international. Participation will give you knowledge you’ll use the rest of your life, whatever career path you choose. Workshops are led by the International Thespian Officers (ITOs).
The ITSLC is made up of the International Thespian Officers (ITO), and one State/Province Thespian Officer (STO/PTO) or appointed delegate from each chapter. The ITSLC meets monthly to develop student leadership skills, elevate the voice of student innovation and input, and foster communication among chapter leaders. The ITSLC is the voting body for ITO elections.
ITOs are Thespian leaders who represent the student voice in EdTA and ITS at the national level. These officers work year-round with EdTA staff, chapter leaders, and Thespians from across the globe to nurture strong student leaders, advocate for the arts, fundraise for accessibility, and create the best experience possible for students.
These grants are awarded to student Thespians with experience in diversity-based leadership, service, and social justice activities, with preference given to students traditionally underrepresented in student leadership. Grants cover registration fees for the current year’s International Thespian Festival (ITF) and Student Leadership Program. Applications open in February and are due in April.
