Jubilee Designs employs youth artists who created decor and gift items from conception through to finely crafted handmade items. The youth are paid an hourly wage and their scheduling is largely based on the goals that they set for themselves upon intake to the program. Our shifts can be flexible with the understanding that there are many barriers facing these youth that make it difficult to come into work on a given day. Jubilee Designs is a familiar and safe work environment creating a positive atmosphere to gain work experience.
Jubilee Designs offers customers two ways to interact with us. The first through our line of products available for sale online. The second stream is youth-led workshops for parties or corporate team-building events.
There are three positions available for the youth: Studio Artists who create our handmade products; Studio Instructors who lead our workshops; and Assistant to the Business Manager who works on the behind the scenes aspects of the Jubilee Designs business.
"Jubilee was really helpful in stabilizing my mental health... I knew I could call in sick, or call in 'homeless' and that I wouldn't have to worry about being punished or judged."
