No Small Plans is committed to ‘partying with a purpose’. Our partnership with Free Write is a natural fit for us as they offer young people with barriers to employment access to living wages while receiving on-the-job training. I want other stakeholders in the creative industry to see how our partnership with Free Write is impacting the lives of these youth as they make their mark in the industry.

My company is a culture marketing and events agency, which our whole purpose is to be plugged into the culture and the community. We believe it is important to ensure people of all backgrounds, especially young adults of color and formerly incarcerated, have a chance to display their talents and skills. Free Write gives young adults an opportunity and even a second chance with these truly valuable skills. When you see young adults hungry to learn and putting in the work they deserve a chance to display their skills. More companies, especially in arts/entertainment, need to be seeking out these individuals for opportunities for employment. No matter a person’s background—dedication and motivation beats all!
