Sketch: Connect 2 Youth program (Toronto)

2 08 2012

SKETCH is “recruiting youth aged 15-21 for a very exciting program called Connect 2 Youth in which youth train youth work students using theatre techniques… Please read the attached description and application, and help SKETCH spread the word!” Applications are due Tuesday August 7, 2012 by 6pm.

“Successful applicants will be taught basic theatre and improvisation techniques, group processes, and adult education practices. Upon completion, the youth trainers will do workshops for staff and students at agencies in the educational, social service & public sector. Through enacting scenarios based upon their direct experiences and the experiences of those who work with youth, C2Y trainers serve as valuable teachers to youth workers, therapists, and others. Successful applicants will be paid $12.00/hr for their participation (50-57 hours of training). They will also be provided with TTC tickets and snacks.

Training takes place August 20- 24, all day (with a possibility of training on Sunday, August 26), and October 1, 2, 7 and 8 evenings. Graduates from the training program will be added to the C2Y roster and make $50 for a 2 hour workshop. There are over 20 workshops already booked for the 2012/13 school year.”
