ADam Shive

Youth Coordinator

Adam has spent the last 20 years working with youth in both a volunteer and professional capacity.  First as an instructor for the University of California Los Angeles’ Summer Arts Intensive and as a facilitator for “Arts Bridge Los Angeles” creating arts-based curriculum for elementary youth in Inglewood, Los Angeles.  He has also worked in a volunteer capacity with many UU congregations, chaperoning YRUU service trips around the country. He believes that we are bonded through community and a commitment to each other through work, shared values and experience. Spiritual practice is found in the doing – in the practice of helping others and being helped in turn.

Previous to working at USSB, Adam spent twenty years working professionally in theater production both on and off Broadway. His work was most recently seen at Lincoln Center Theater, The Public Theater, New York Theater Workshop, The Atlantic Theater Company, Theater for a New Audience, The Dublin International Theater Festival, REDCAT Los Angeles, The Walker Center for the Arts Minneapolis, Ensemble Theater Company Santa Barbara, and Elementary Elements at Mountain View Elementary School.  He holds a BA and MFA from UCLA School of Theater, Film, and Television.
