Youth Engagement Experts
With over 25 years of experience in education and children’s theatre, the visionary artistic leaders of DreamRider Productions have mastered the art of engaging the heart, mind and spirit of each child to inspire a new generation of environmental superheroes!
Through story, music, interactive media and live theatre, we create inclusive, meaningful, and full-throttle experiences that children adore and that instill positive environmental values in their hearts — and in their actions. Kids feel energized, happy, and eager to put into practice what they have learned! Read more about our Mission & Values!
We started as a project of the City of Vancouver in 1997, engaging elementary school kids in water conservation through theatre. Word spread, and pretty soon we were working with municipalities to reach schools, teachers and kids throughout the Metro Vancouver region. Due to popular demand, we became our own independent non-profit Dream Rider Theatre Society in 2002, before becoming a registered charity in 2005.
Following the success of our award-winning live theatre shows, we wanted to scale our reach and impact beyond Metro Vancouver to inspire a whole generation of environmental superheroes. The result is the Planet Protector Academy, a unique digital-led classroom-based program in which kids become ‘apprentice’ Planet Protectors’ and go home on superhero missions to change their families’ behaviours!
Today, we work with municipal governments, school districts, foundations and companies to reach more than 50,000 K-7 students each year – at no cost to 95% of schools! Read more about our Partners & Supporters!
