Looking for an opportunity to grow your skills & connect with a team of other like-minded people?
FReeZA is a free event management program for people aged 15-25 who are looking to contribute to their community by planning & running 5 live music and cultural events throughout the year. As part of the program, you will get practical (and professionally supported) experience organising events (booking performers, promotion, risk management, etc) & staffing them too (initial set up/pack down, door sales, cafe, stage management, etc)!
Through your involvement with FReeZA, you will receive a range of free training (including AV basics from a professional technician, fire warden training, music industry knowledge, etc), practical life skills (email writing, chairing/minute taking, teamwork, planning, etc), as well as the opportunity to volunteer at other Council run initiatives. At the end of your involvement with the program, you will be given a reference letter to use in future job/education applications, as well as ongoing support to get linked in with any pathways you wish to pursue.
FReeZA meetings take place weekly every Tuesday from 4.30-6.30pm either at EV's Youth Centre OR online via Zoom (pending COVID-19 restrictions). Delicious snacks are provided at all in person meetings!
Places are limited with a maximum of 12 people per year. You can only participate in the Maroondah FReeZA program once (although there's the possibility of 1-2 Senior Crew positions).
Program starting date is Tuesday 2 February 2021.
There's no cost associated with the FReeZA program (but you must be able to attend at least 80% of meetings throughout the 12 months).
