The young men at Donald E. Long Juvenile Detention Center performed "A Heartless Background" for their final class with Rogue Pack. This is a photo of the backdrop for the show which they created. Here are some of their words: A heartless background is where I come from. From love and knowing that because of the respect I get in the streets and love that is shown. Long line of OG's telling me the game. Thinking about who is out to get me or who will stab me in the back or will that bullet connect? Experiences like flashing lights and breaking the identity of individuals who call themselves hard. I come from belief and honor of my street. I wish my life would become more important.

We are Rogue Pack. 

Roaming the Portland area as nonprofit creative facilitators of under served youth, Rogue Pack encourages self-expression and instills confidence and joy in our young people through storytelling and theatre.

We build community partnerships that enable our youth to take control of their stories and ignite their creativity, from the dramatic to the downright hilarious, where hopeless becomes hopeful and the impossible becomes very much possible.

Inspired by OR-7, the infamous wandering wolf now happily at home with a den in Oregon, we support those lone souls looking for their pack, community support and creative expression, and a little team howling.

We’d love your support.  Be a Rogue—join the Pack!

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT ROGUE PACK

From community partners to grant foundations, supporting businesses and media, there’s a palpable sense of excitement that Rogue Pack is making an impact with young people and our Portland area communities.  And with your help, there’s even greater room to roam.

A raw and heartbreaking show that cast a bright, unfiltered light on the young adults living on city streets.

They bring a super high level of professionalism and energy with them every day, and our youth benefited greatly.
Each performer gets the chance to shine, to add her voice to what, by the end of the show, is a veritable chorus of empowerment, strength, and sass.
