Last week on April 8th, the STA Young Workers Committee held their first paint night led by artist extraordinaire Mckenzie Matthews. The event exceeded event registration and continued to be sought up until the event itself. With over 55 attendees, this group of young people sought to draw (and paint) new connections to their union and each other.
Young Workers face new challenges entering what is often their first profession, first exposure to unions, and are often more susceptible to being taken advantage of. 1 in every 3 early career teachers is likely to experience burnout and leave the profession. Events like this are integral to keeping our young workers connected and supported.
So stay tuned for more fun and engaging ways to connect coming your way from the STA Young Workers Committee.
