Megan Miller is the director of programs at Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit
, an award-winning non-profit whose mission is to empower young people to maximize their potential through professional performing arts training and the creation of high-quality theatrical and musical art. Under her leadership, Mosaic grew from serving 230 youth through First Stage programs in '03-'04 to over 1,000 youth in '05-'06. She developed Mosaic's first comprehensive training program for First Stage staff based on best practices in youth development and the Mosaic Model of Youth Development through the Arts. As a Mosaic alumna ('93-'97), Megan knows first hand the transformative power of Mosaic's programs and is thrilled to be part of an organization working hard to make a difference in the lives of Detroit area youth.
Megan is a proud alumna of Cass Tech High School and Oberlin College. After completing her BA, she taught French in the Detroit Public Schools, first at the Foreign Language Immersion and Cultural Studies (FLICS) School and later at Sherrard Middle School. She sought to create opportunities for students to experience the performing arts; starting a theatre and dance program for students at FLICS and organizing a cultural-artistic exchange for the Mosaic Singers to Senegal, West Africa in 2003. After moving abroad to study dance in Paris, France, Megan returned to Detroit to work at Mosaic.
She was selected as an Emerging Leader for the Bank of America Neighborhood Excellence Leadership Program in 2009 and is a graduate of the New Detroit Multicultural Leadership Series. She is an active volunteer with the teen group at her church, Renaissance Unity.
