Media Advisory - Mayor showcases Jane-Finch multi-media project
Mayor David Miller and Seneca College President Rick Minor will join
participants to celebrate the completion of the Jane-Finch Introduction to
Multi-Media Pilot Project. Part of the Mayor’s Community Safety Plan, this
project has helped young people develop skills and explore career opportunities
in multi-media. Targeted to unemployed youth aged 16 to 24, it included 10
weeks of training on different multi-media options, life skills and job search
strategies. After their training, participants are given placements in various
organizations for at least two weeks.

Date: Friday, December 2
Time: 9:30 a.m.
Location: Seneca @ York
Stephen E. Quinlan Building
70 The Pond

Government, the education sector and the community worked in partnership to
promote a healthy and safe neighbourhood. By combining initial training with
placement opportunities and capitalizing on youth interests in arts and
cultural expression, the project engages youth in programs and services that
promote civic involvement, and provides academic, social, economic, violence
prevention and skill-building opportunities. Youths who have completed this
pilot program will offer their insights during the presentation, and will also
be available for interviews. As well, the celebration will feature a display of
the art by the participating
young people.
