Lunch and Learn: Improving employment outcomes for vulnerable youth
McCreary will be hosting two webinar presentations that provide an overview of the findings of a recent project that looked at improving employment outcomes for vulnerable BC youth. Each presentation will be 25 minutes long, followed by time for questions and discussion with the hosts.
This project was funded by the BC Centre for Employment Excellence (BCCfEE) and the BC Ministry of Social Development and Social Innovation.
Youth Action Grants (YAG) - Grants up to $500 for youth-led projects
The Youth Action Grants (YAG) are a project of the McCreary Youth Advisory & Action Council (YAC). The YAGs were created to provide BC youth (ages 12-19) from school districts that participated in the 2013 BC Adolescent Health Survey, the opportunity to deliver a project which aims to improve youth health in their school or community.
