The LIT program is a free opportunity aimed at training students in arts leadership and instruction. This year the program will entail an in person training/learning day on March 13th from 12-5pm at Neptune Theatre. Participants will then go on to attend workshops and shadow our March Break camps, which take place at Shambhala School on Russell Street from March 15-19th. We will ask our LIT's to participate on site at from 8:30am-4:30pm. The morning will entail training and learning sessions and in the afternoons you will be assigned a classroom to shadow in our children's camps. LIT's will be asked to wear a mask while in the camp classrooms. (This program is open to anyone 16-23yrs)

What is this Project? This free program involves two virtual rehearsals and take home practice tracks we will create a mini-virtual choir of voices of youth from across the province. Jeremiah will virtually coach us through a gospel version of “What the World Needs Now is Love”. Our first Digital Music Video was a huge success in December and we look forward to working together to create more of these as part of our Pivot Projects in 2021.
