2019 Young Workers’ School at Camp Jubilee

To all PSAC BC Young Workers!

Each year the BCFED hosts the Young Workers’ School at Camp Jubilee. The school is set in a retreat-like environment where participants attend courses to help them build skills related to the labour movement and political action. There are outdoor activities and a chance to meet other young workers from around the province.

The 2019 Young Workers’ School at Camp Jubilee takes place June 14-16 2019 and registration for the opens May 1. Visit https://conference.bcfed.ca/youngworkerschool/ for more information.

Should you be able to attend and fit the eligibility requirements I encourage you to apply for Camp Jubilee in June 2019. It is a great opportunity for young workers to network and meet other like-minded young workers from across the province in an beautiful outdoor setting. Best of all, the PSAC B.C. Region is offering subsidies towards young workers who are PSAC members to take part in the school.

How to apply? Email the following information to Deanna Kimball (kimballd@psac-afpc.com ) by May 22, 2019.

  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!

In solidarity,
