Career Discoveries is an experience based educational opportunity for youth in a camp based setting.
Participants will be exposed to industry professionals who will mentor, train and provide their real life experiences, opening up pathways for young people to take their first step toward a rewarding career.
In addition to obtaining important industry insight, participants will also gain a better understanding of Gitxsan traditions and culture.
In conjunction with expert industry professionals, students in our camp programs are provided with guidance from elders and other community experts. With this guidance, participants become cultural ambassadors, ready to share their knowledge and experiences as they embark on their careers.
Participants are encouraged to ask questions, actively participate and challenge themselves through new skill development.
Gitxsan Development Corporation and its industry partners are continuously looking for self-motivated, enthusiastic and career driven youth, to fill future employment opportunities.
The participant is a motivated and responsible individual, who’s ready to take the next steps toward their future career. If this sounds like you and you’re serious about building your future, then let’s get started!
- A good level of fitness
- Entering Grade 10
- Completion of the Career Discoveries application form
