INDIGENOUS COMMUNITY FOR LEADERSHIP AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS

YOUTH CAREER SURFING

Many First Nations youth struggle in finding meaningful employment. There have been many barriers identified that have caused the young people to give up. Our Youth Career Surfing Workshop creates an environment that engages the youth by exploring the many career choices from general labour jobs to a future working with technology, the environment, and tourism to name a few. This workshop will provide a strong start for youth (15 to 30 years of age) moving from school to employment or further education.
