This House Collective project was formed to train and mentor two teenage boys in their final years of high school. Our goal was to create work they could do outside of school, so they could both contribute to their families and continue their education, while also learning a number of unique skills among their peer group
In 2018, one of The Reinforcers graduated from high school and took a full job locally! Stephen continues to train one young man, Pyint Soe, weekly, as he continues in his final year of high school.
The House Collective has sound equipment that is available for rent in the Mae Sot area for office events, fundraisers, concerts, presentations, and more. With each booking, customers receive a quality sound system and the assistance of a sound technician, trained to set up the sound equipment, run it during the event, and then tear down. The initial costs of equipment were funded, so now we are able to charge reasonable rates to simply cover their salaries and maintain equipment overtime.
In addition to live sound, The Reinforcers are available to record, edit, and master in The House Collective studio. Pyint Soe continues as an apprentice, as Stephen teaches him the basics of recording and overseas each project.
