  • Give volunteer support to local charities and events
  • Do yard maintenance or light carpentry
  • Paint
  • Clean
  • Care for pets
  • Help with computers, household technology, or clerical tasks; and/or
  • Learn and work while mentoring with a tradesperson
  • and much more!

Teens, you’re eligible for this free program if you’re 14-18 years old and  educated in the Saanich School District (SD 63).  You can:

  • Choose your level of participation
  • Attend interesting training, workshops and courses to prepare for a successful career future
  • Get certificates for First Aid, Food Safe and other skills that employers look for
  • Get help with your resume, cover letter, and interview skills
