Each semester we employ up to seven part-time student workers from the OCU campus, which provides practical education and experience in working for a professional theatre company. Our student workers have the opportunity to learn teaching skills as well as gain experience in box office management, set and props construction, PR, and many other areas that will benefit them when they graduate and are employed by theatre companies elsewhere.
Youth Advisory Board
Our Youth Advisory Board, known as the YAB, is made up of young people aged 12-16, who want to remain involved with our organization, even if they've aged out of our programs. The Youth Advisory Board is a self-lead teen leadership group that is advised by OCT administrative staff and serves its surrounding community of students, families, and educators.
Each year we provide opportunities for teens to volunteer as part of our seasonal camp programs. Our teen volunteer program provides a safe and engaging environment that focusses on teaching young people important life skills through an internship styled program. Our teen volunteers are responsible and motivated teens aged 14-16 years old, who work alongside our campers, teaching, and administrative staff in our camp programs. Volunteers learn leadership skills, gain professional experience, are presented with creative opportunities, solve problems, and socialize in a safe and structured environment. Our volunteers are primarily ex-students who have aged out of our regular classes but want to stay involved with our organization.
