Registration now open for Co-Lab
Participants wanted for an innovation challenge and workshop on youth employment
Are you a young English speaker in Quebec who has had trouble finding and maintaining employment in your region?
Do you have ideas on how to improve access to employment services and retention programs for English-speakers?
If yes, then we want to hear from you!
CBC Quebec, Canadian Heritage and Quebec Community Groups Network are looking for creative and dynamic participants to work with community organizations during a two-day event in November.
The goal? To identify innovative employment solutions for English-speaking youth in Quebec.
What is it?
The Co-Lab Experience is a two-day event that partners local community organizations with youth like you who are looking to make a difference.
Your role will be to work with these organizations to conceive ideas for innovative programs that meet the real needs of your community.
The event takes place Nov. 14 to 16, 2019 at Bishop's University in Lennoxville, Que. There is no cost to attend. Meals and refreshments will be provided. You are responsible for transportation and lodging, if required.
Join the Co-Lab experience and be a part of the solution. There will be prizes for the best projects and most engaged participants (cash prizes and cool stuff).
CBC's Radio Noon will also be there broadcasting live from the Learning Commons on Nov. 15 from 12 to 1 p.m.
Register by Nov. 11 for early bird prizes. Walk-ins are also accepted.
