The WGA is happy to share On Site Placement’s (OSP) Diversity Awareness and Skill Building Youth Program. The Diversity Awareness and Skill Building Youth Program (DASB) is designed to engage youth (ages 16 – 30) in self-directed volunteer programs or projects that promote inclusion initiatives in their school, workplace or community. OSP is currently recruiting youth who have a passion for promoting diversity and inclusion for all and youth who are interested in expanding their skills in leadership, outreach, and advocacy for a diverse city of opportunity. Youth will engage in mentorship opportunities to strengthen their knowledge of diverse cultures and collective identities, acquire the knowledge on what it takes to be a strong ally of community support, earn certifications and possibly earn up to 125 volunteer hours and education credits.
DASB includes the following for participants:
· 120-hour commitment over a 3-month period (includes workshops and special guest speakers, a volunteer opportunity to put what you learn into practice, your project, initiative, or campaign and reflection and feedback on your learning).
· Diversity Training credentials (assets for resumes and employers).
· A completed diversity campaign or artistic project that you can continue to grow and add to your work portfolio.
· Work experience and professional references.
We encourage any of youth members who are interested to apply for DASB. Participants have the option to work with the WGA on their project if the literary arts is their area of interest, thought participants do not need to have a project in mind to apply.
