What is this workshop about?
Youth in the Workplace examines employment rights, human rights, and systemic discrimination. Like intimate relationships, employment relationships create a spectrum of legal rights and responsibilities that can result in exploitation and discrimination. Asserting one’s rights as a young person can be challenging and sometimes seem impossible. This program provides tools and knowledge to help young people assert those rights in the context of complex power dynamics.
Who is it for?
The workshop was developed for youth between the ages of 15-25 in Grades 10+, and can be delivered in schools or community groups. It is currently available in and around Vancouver, Nanaimo, and Kamloops.
Who are the facilitators?
All of our youth workshops are delivered by a Youth Workshop Coordinator, sometimes with support from our volunteer youth facilitators. Our volunteer youth facilitators are between the ages of 18-24 and have undergone 21 hours of intensive training.
How long is it?
The workshop is 2.5 hours in length, and can be offered over 1 or 2 sessions.
How much does it cost?
We ask for a $100 honorarium (on a sliding scale) to help cover the costs of the workshop; we are committed to making this workshop accessible to all audiences and are happy to discuss an arrangement that will work for your group.
