Community Pride – Youth Employment Program

Community Pride provides up to 40 hours of paid employment for participating youth ages 15-29. Whitevalley Community Resource Centre then connects the youth to local organizations. This project provides youth with valuable work experience, gives them a chance to build interpersonal skills and confidence, opportunity to expand their resumes, and free courses such as WCB Level 1, Food Safe and Superhost as well as resume writing, interview skills, and job search skills may be available. Right now we are eagerly looking for any clubs, organizations or committees who would like to be a mentor for a local youth, in exchange for a little help with their endeavors.

Community Pride is generously funded by United Way North Okanagan Columbia Shuswap, Community Gaming and Telus
