We are currently recruiting Gr. 9 – 11 students for our Youth Skills Program we’ve been running in partnership at Van Tech for more than 10 years. It is a 10 week program where youth learn transferable skills to build their confidence at volunteer / work placements.
In past cohorts, we had 15-20 Van Tech students who received their first aid or food safe certification, enjoyed learning more about themselves and each other, and volunteered a minimum of 40+ hours at local organizations. Youth Skills runs after school at the BASE Space on Wednesdays – and there is free food (e.g. pizza, sushi, etc) and bus tickets!
We are hoping you might know Grade 11 students who'd be interested to participate in Youth Skills. Our program starts soon, and we’re hoping to reach out to a few more folx. Could you refer students to us and/or send a short blurb through an email list?
