The new batch of students at Intersections Media enjoyed a day of creativity doing my three tiered creativity workshop! I was honored to work with such amazing youth and staff in the beautiful space of District 319! The workshop was designed to get the creative juices flowing while getting to know fellow classmates. We started with drawing, moved onto journaling/collaging and finishing with sock monkeys! It was all laughter, smiles and pride at the end of the day. Intersections Media is an excellent model for my work with my students at Keith Lynn Alternative Secondary as we expand opportunities for youth.
Intersections Media Opportunities For Youth is a non-profit society which offers a variety of skills development programs for at-risk youth in the lower mainland who face multiple barriers to employment.
Intersections’ mandate is to transition at-risk youth into continued education and/or sustainable employment, while reinforcing healthy life-style choices and positive life skills.
They provide workshop and project-based programs that focus on film, video, and visual arts as a means of teaching fundamental life and employment skills to participants.
