Junior Players is the oldest, longest running arts programming nonprofit in Dallas. Since 1955, Junior Players has been empowering young voices by providing free, high quality, arts programming to North Texas children and youth. 

Through our programming, youth are transformed.

Too many youth are silenced because of realities outside of their control. Income, language proficiency and school district funding can limit their ability to believe in themselves. Junior Players exists to encourage, empower, and enrich the lives of North Texas children and youth with the skills and abilities to confidently express themselves at home, in school, and in their professional lives. 

Our camps and afterschool programs are targeted to arts deserts - those areas that are underfunded and underserved. There, we engage children and youth through the arts, providing them with the tools they need to navigate real life challenges confidently and competently. 

Giving Activity


The mission of Junior Players is to encourage intellectual growth, mental well-being and the development of life skills in youth through mentoring, creative expression, and participation in the fine arts.


"Junior Players is Opportunity"

As a nonprofit, Junior Players relies on the generous support of individuals, corporations and foundations to provide free, high quality arts programming that empowers young voices in North Texas and beyond.

To help empower young voices, and equip more youth with confidence, we need your support. All funds will go towards helping youth discover and develop their potential.
