Joe’s Theater Tech Program Opens 2016-2017 Enrollment

The Theater Tech Program (TTP) of Joe’s Movement Emporium is a job-training program in lighting, sound, digital media, photography, storytelling and more that provides skills for creative industries.  TTP has been in existence for eight years. The program serves young Prince Georgians ages 17-22 who are high school seniors, recent high school graduates, or working on their GEDs.  There is a program during the day for out-of-school youth and in the evenings for high school seniors.  TTP serves young people from low-income families who live in Prince George’s County, Maryland. Proof of household income is required.

Students participate in a four-month training program and receive a stipend for completing the training phase.  A paid internship of 60 hours is offered at minimum wage and additional hourly paid work may be available with Joe’s theater tech crew or employer partners.  The final phase of the program includes college and job placement support.  The 2016 TTP program year will begin in October 2016.

All applicants will be notified of their acceptance or rejection within two weeks of the second interview.
