Dive Into YSJ
Welcome to the Dive into YSJ: Youth Empowerment Program!
This program is an after school program for permanent resident youth, ages 16-19, to learn leadership, empowerment, and creativity skills for success. The program will feature workshops on various leadership, confidence, and empowerment topics to help you succeed in furthering education, your career, or starting your business.
As this program is a cohort-based after school program, there will be some homework and mandatory attendance. This is to ensure you are getting the most out of the program, and that you can include your experience within this program on resumes, cover letters, job application, and college/scholarship applications.
We will have 3 Cohorts of 8 clients. The first cohort begins on October 28 from 4:00-5:30pm and will be held over Zoom. Please see the calendar below for the schedule. Seats are still available! Please fill out the registration form prior to October 28.
The topics we will discuss in our workshops are time and project management, self-confidence and personal image, creativity and creative thinking, personal growth and long-term goal setting.
This will be a fun but in-depth program with some homework and questions to consider over the weekends and will hopefully give you all the skills you need to succeed as you finish high school and go on into your career or further education.
We hope to see you there!
