Media Advisory - New initiative to use urban culture as a bridge to employment, education and training for at-risk youth
  
Thirty youth from Toronto’s priority neighbourhoods will have the opportunity to turn their art interest and skill into a career thanks to the Remix Project, a new training program that will use hip hop culture as an engagement tool. From music, radio, film and television to photography, graphic design and creative writing, the youth-led urban arts project will empower young people who are struggling with multiple barriers to take the steps to realize their potential.

Mayor David Miller will join the youth participants and project partners to officially launch the Remix Project that provides aspiring artists and entrepreneurs with job training, life skills, mentoring, internships and education opportunities at the Remix Project training facilities.

Date: Tuesday, September 19
Time: 1 p.m.
Place: 110 Sudbury St., second floor

The Remix Project supports the Youth Opportunity pillar of Toronto’s Community Safety Plan - one of four key pillars - that calls for youth education, employment and engagement opportunities.
