On March 19th-22nd 2018, LaSalle College Vancouver hosted our annual Structured Work Experience and Training workshop. The S.W.E.A.T. program provides High School students with the opportunity to earn valuable work experience in a simulated creative work environment. Students got to choose their area of interest from a wide array of industry areas: design, media arts, fashion and culinary. The students had a chance to interact with multiple instructors with valuable industry background. The amount of information and knowledge these students learned in just four days was outstanding. The outcome was incredible!
