At African Women Acting, we take pride in supporting young people: our future. We offer year-round and seasonal employment and volunteer opportunities to youths including empowering young women. We also support associated collaborations and partnerships.
Young women are educated and enlightened in employment, womanhood, sisterhood, mental health, self-care, financial health and navigating to social inclusion.
Summer 2021, AWA has employed students through the Canada Summer Jobs Program. Students have been hired in various positions from administration, video direction and marketing.
In late 2020, we created, hosted and facilitated a series of live streams addressing mental health and made available to artists and the community at large.
During the COVID-19 pandemic in the fall of 2020, the organization assembled and employed crafters to sew face masks that were initially donated to non-profit organizations and community members. Fancy tote bags were added in efforts to fundraise.
