Organization Description

The mission of The Unusual Suspects Theatre Company is to mentor, educate, and enrich youth in under-resourced communities through the creation of collaborative, original theatre.

The vision of The Unusual Suspects Theatre Company is a world where all youth are given the opportunities and support they need to succeed.

For over 20 years, The Unusual Suspects has responded to the systemic challenges facing Los Angeles’ youth. The Unusual Suspects participants break patterns of recidivism, gang activity and violence, and go on to be graduates, dreamers, leaders and mentors who are engaged in and give back to their communities.

Board Member Position Description

The Unusual Suspects Board is responsible for oversight of the Unusual Suspects organization and its goal of being managed effectively, efficiently and ethically by the Unusual Suspects’ Executive Director. The Unusual Suspects Board is also responsible for making all reasonable efforts to confirm that Unusual Suspects is fiscally sound and that the organization operates in keeping with its mission, values, strategic goals and bylaws.

Board members must maintain high standards of ethical practice and professional conduct, which identifies conflicts of interests, inappropriate use or allocation of Unusual Suspects’ resources, inappropriate interference in the day-to-day work of the Unusual Suspects’ Executive Director and staff, violations of confidentiality, and engaging in any acts or making any decisions on behalf of Unusual Suspects that the Board believes are not in the best interest of the organization.
