2018 Summer Pilot Program
Project Self Control's Summer Pilot Program was held During July at World Theater in Katy. The pilot participants in attendance didn't know what to expect until they arrived.
This picture is halfway through the first day. You can see from the joy on their faces that they were happy and having fun. It was the beginning of a wonderful four weeks of a journey that ended with them all performing a fabulous play for their family and friends.
