Summer Youth Internship Program

Students who are placed in the program obtain summer employment and get paid competitive industry wages, as well as have the opportunity to complete their youth apprenticeship over the summer. The best part though, is that students are provided with a mentor and are given the opportunity to experience first-hand what the trades industry is all about.  The experience gained by the students and the networks they establish through the program prove to be very valuable when making career-life decisions in the future.   

SaskCode

SaskCode is an integrated technology program that introduces coding and computational thinking at a wide range of grade levels using age-appropriate technologies. Our activities are linked to existing mathematics, science, and other curricula in Saskatchewan. To accomplish this goal, we work with teachers to provide professional development to equip them with the pedagogy and technological skills they need to engage their students in their learning.

CONNECTED: Young woman exploring careers

CONNECTED: Young Women Exploring Careers is a dinner event that links females from grades 10 through 12 with female mentors from a vast spectrum of career backgrounds. We believe that young women need access to adult role models who are willing to share their stories and career pathways. Ultimately, promoting a culture of support and empowerment among young women as they navigate their preferred future. We offer the event at no cost to both our mentors and female students. CONNECTED welcomes students pursuing all post-secondary pathways: work, university, college or apprenticeship and those who are still deciding.
