Did you know the Firehall runs a Youth Training Program? Yep, since 2010.
The program began as a pilot project in the creative sector through Bladerunners, an organization working to provide basic employment training and skills for at-risk youth to enter the workforce.
This is Justina, Victoria, Tia and Nicholas. And Mitch.
Say hi you guys!
This lovely group will be with us until July, learning the ropes of what it takes to work in an arts organization. They’ll get training in Front of House, Bartending, Box Office, Marketing and Outreach and Production.
When you see them, say hi, they’re pretty cool. Look for future entries from them on the blog when they regale you with tales of their experiences at the Firehall!
