New! Youth leadership program to run over spring break

January 31, 2020

We're looking for teens who want to gain job skills for future employment opportunities. Our Youth Leadership Program (steps 1 & 2) will be running over spring break.

Step 1:

Have you ever wanted to work at the Esquimalt Rec Centre? The Youth Training Program provides opportunities to develop skills in customer service, public speaking, behavior management, and extensive game and craft training. Learn to become the kind of leader that you loved coming to see at the rec centre and help us provide a FUN experience to our patrons this spring! Graduates of the program will be required to spend up to additional hours (up to 40) volunteering in our programs (across many department areas including camps, aquatics, and special events) to gain hands on experience and learn from our excellent team members! Don't miss this unique opportunity to join our team and develop employable skills for the future!
WHEN: 16-Mar-2020 - 20-Mar-2020, 9:00am - 4:00pm   COST: $145/5


Step 2:

Calling all Graduates of the Esquimalt Youth Training Program! Come and undertake this second stage of our training program with your new arsenal of skills developed from step one. In this step of training we will focus more on what it takes to acquire a job and succeed in this day and age’s workforce. Resume development, interview skills and first aid training are just a few of many integral skills you and your peers will hone over this weeklong adventure. Graduates of this program will be considered for an interview for any relevant job postings made by the Esquimalt Rec Centre should they apply (granted the applicant possesses the correct prerequisites). Make sure not to miss this chance to further sharpen your skills to become a successful employee any employer would be lucky to have! **This program is ideal for 15-18 year olds OR 13/14 year olds who have completed Step 1.
