Rochester, N.Y. - Why wait until college to start your career when you can get some hands-on experience right now?
That's the inspiration behind a new program for students in the city.
13WHAM stopped by a ribbon-cutting ceremony held Saturday for Generation Outreach. The goal is to help kids figure out what they want to do in life before leaving high school.
The program will offer students a hands-on experience in everything from film production to cosmetology to graphic design.
"It's just going to open up a whole new world to students," says program founder Justin Ortiz. "A lot of these students have never even touched a camera, have never even touched music equipment. Its going to expose them to a whole new world of opportunity."
The program is free and open to Rochester City School students starting November 26th.
