Northern school districts, in particular are being encouraged to bring their secondary school students.

 The Youth Experience is a half-day program for students in grades 10 through 12 and will learn about: LNG and jobs in this industry, get hands-on experience using heavy equipment and welding simulators, identify career paths that reflect their skills and interests via a WorkBC program and interact with B.C post-secondary institutions and explore what programs are offered related to the LNG industry.

 The Province will provide up to $400 per student to help offset transportation costs.

 Minister of Jobs, Tourism, Skills and Training, Shirley Bond says “For northern students, a lot of these LNG jobs will be in their backyards. So we want to make sure we’re connecting them with the training opportunities and information they need to be first in line for rewarding careers in their own communities.”

 The conference is taking place May 21st through the 23rd.
