WAM is excited to begin a partnership with the Cal-safe (California School Age Families Education) program in Oakland this summer. Cal-Safe is a program that serves expectant and parenting students aged 13 to 18 who have not completed high school and who live within the Oakland school district.
The program’s overall goals are to enable motivated students to complete their high school education, to learn to provide a safe and caring environment for their young children, to secure gainful employment, and ultimately become fully self-reliant.
WAM will be teaching a recording and music production class twice a week beginning in June. Young parents will learn about careers in sound engineering, how to record on Pro Tools and Garage Band, A/V and live sound skills, etc.
