We are so grateful to partner with Chickenshed NYC

Working at Chickenshed brings so much joy to Michael, who thrives off of being part of a warm, exciting, and accepting community. Michael takes so much joy in being able to contribute to the beautiful work that Chickenshed creates with a diverse group of children. Michael takes great pride in seeing the impact he makes in the lives of others, as he also grows as a professional. We are so grateful to partner with Chickenshed, but most importantly Michael is at a workplace where he feels deeply happy and valued.

Chickenshed is the Greatest

Chickenshed has allowed our daughter to gain more confidence in everything she does. Above all, it allows her to be herself! The happiness is contagious amongst the students and truly highlights what every student’s strengths are.

Every child should have the opportunity to experience a show; truly terrific.

Yesterday’s performance was outstanding! Chickenshed is the first group that we have been able to bring into school since the onset of the pandemic and we were blown away! What a perfect, age-appropriate, fun-filled morning with wonderful messages for young people! Our students loved the show, our teachers thought it was fabulous AND, the person who underwrote the performance just gave us the go-ahead to book 2 more! Thank you so much for sharing Chickenshed and bringing so much joy and energy to us on a Monday morning.
