Over the last couple weeks, we’ve been reading applications for Shameless Wire with rising excitement. We don’t have any shortage of applicants, but a local organization has requested some more time to spread the word to their participants. That sounds like a great idea to us, so we’ve extended our deadline to December 31st.
If you have already applied, thank you! You will hear back from us shortly after the new deadline. If you are interested in the program but haven’t applied, there is still time to send us an email. If you are in the GTA, a young woman or trans youth, and 20 or under as of January 1st, we’d love to hear from you!
If you work with youth, or know anyone who works with youth, there is also still time to let them know about the project. Details about the program and how to apply are posted here. (Note that the PDF poster still has the old deadline on it - we will fix that as soon as we can. In the meantime, if you would like an updated poster, you can email us.) We’d especially appreciate it if you could get in touch with any teachers in your lives, but remember that there are only a few days of school left before the holidays. Depending on her schedule, our coordinator Allison Martell is available to drop by classrooms and youth groups to talk about the program.
It’s also not too late to donate to the program. While we’ve raised enough money to go ahead with the project, we still don’t have the capacity to take in as many participants as we’d like. Just $500 is the difference between running the program with 10 youth, and expanding to take 15. Every donation makes a difference.
