EAST Youth Programs
EAST is a collaborative program for Scarborough youth between the ages of 16 and 24 who work under the guidance of professional artists, project managers, local social service providers, youth outreach workers, and peer mentors. EAST uses the universal medium of arts and creativity to encourage healthy, innovative forms of self expression; foster a sustainable, enriching relationship with the arts; teach broadly based transferable life skills; provide new and engaging social experiences; help identify future post-secondary and employment directions; and provide direct employment preparation training. All EAST workshops are free and open to all.
This year, EAST will offer intensive workshops in music, film and photography, and theatre. For more information about EAST, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

Applications are now being accepted for EAST Mixtape Challenge, a 16-week intensive program where youth can learn more about beats, flow, performance techniques, songwriting and song structure, and artists’ rights. Youth participants also get to professionally record songs and perform at various music festivals and events in Scarborough throughout the summer months! The program is FREE and is open to all youth aged 16 to 24!
Workshops will be held every Monday, 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at Toronto Public Library—Malvern SPOT on 30 Sewells Road. For more information and to apply, visit: http://bit.ly/2DMn7en
