In addition to coursework, attendees will be able to participate in a variety of outdoor activities and connect with other young workers from around the province.

The registration fee is $375, which includes bus transportation from Londsdale Quay, boat transport to Camp Jubilee, meals, courses, activities and accommodation. The registration fee does not cover transportation to Londsdale Quay in North Vancouver.

The PSAC B.C. Region is offering subsidies towards PSAC-B.C. young workers participating. 

How to apply? Email the following information to Deanna Kimball by August 10, 2018.

  1. Send us your name and full contact info.
  2. Give us a brief rundown of your anticipated costs, other sources of funding that you have already applied for, and monies already granted if applicable.
  3. Tell us in brief why it is important for you as a young worker to attend this event.
  4. Explain how you will use this experience to help raise the profile of PSAC young workers in your workplace, union, and/or community.

As with other funding sources, if a subsidy is granted, we would expect a short report/evaluation of your participation at the School within 4 weeks after the event, especially if you’ve already acted on what you had planned to do with this info. In the past we’ve had different kinds of reports such as written reports, a photo montage, etc. You could even create a short YouTube video if you want. Feel free to be creative!
