Summer Work Experience & Adventure Program
Supported through various community organizations and charitable foundations and offered by the District of West Vancouver's Youth Services team, the Summer Work Experience and Adventure Program is a unique 6-week opportunity for West Vancouver youth (ages 15–18) that provides them with employment training, a paid work placement and weekly outdoor adventures, such as kayaking and hiking.
The Youth Services team works together with local businesses to provide a positive first work experience for eligible, selected youth and convey a realistic healthy message to our young people about responsibility, relationships, and rewards. This year, the Youth Services team will partner with Power To Be to provide the weekly adventures that we hope will facilitate the further development of communication and leadership skills, plus increase self-regulation capacity in the youth.
Applications for the 2022 intake have closed. Please check again on May 1, 2023, for next summer's application process.
