UforChange is an arts based education program for youth ages 16-29 living in St. James Town and Regent Park. Over the last two years the organization has been creating attention all over the GTA. Now they have youth coming from Scarborough, Jane & Finch and even Brampton. Crazy right?
In 2012 the Prince of Wales visited their space and learned how to Dj, sew and mingled with the staff and youth. This summer Google Canada powered NewGen, a series of workshops that thought the youth how to effectively use Social Media, how to make a short PSA and to create their own website. The Inspirit Foundation funded cycle 6’s theatre workshop and performance.
The program offers: Hip Hop/ Contemporary Dance, Film & Video, Photography, Theatre, Business Fashion
++++++++ Education Assistance w/ OSAP, applications, scholarships, GED Programs & much more!
Great things come out of UforChange and the organization always has cool crazy projects on the go. They are looking for youth to apply to their next cycle that will start on September 23rd.
