ALSO’s 10-10-10 Employment Program teaches marketable sound industry skills.
While working 10 hours a week at $10 per hour for 10 weeks, disconnected youth and young adults in the 10-10-10 Program learn how to set up and operate state-of-the-art sound system equipment speakers, musicians and vocalists. Participants explore opportunities for job placement and learn what is required to obtain and retain a job as a sound technician. Youth build a history of mainstream employment and as well as learn technical skills through this program. In addition to teaching technical skills, staff engage participants in discussions and exercises about how to prevent violence in their own lives, and about pro-social skills that contribute to healthy choices, resilience, and peaceful conflict resolution.
