Intersections Media Opportunities for Youth Society (“Intersections)” is a non-profit charitable organization founded by the late William Vince (“Bill”), an Oscar-nominated Vancouver filmmaker and advocate for youth at risk. Our program offers an employability and life skills workshop and work experience opportunity to youth facing multiple barriers to employment. Bill’s life is our ongoing inspiration and our programming is his legacy. Through the unique and familiar medium of art and digital filmmaking as well as involvement in group-based projects, Intersections participants gain the experience and confidence for long-term attachment to the workforce. Bill believed in the potential of youth and the power of helping others help themselves.
