Youth service program carries on despite COVID-19: ‘We made a pledge to work through the pandemic
At a time when COVID-19 has put a halt to so many community programs, some groups are finding ways to carry on through the pandemic. Gil Tucker has more on an effort that still manages to bring young people together, to learn about Canada and to provide help for those in need.
Katimavik’s flagship National Experience program empowers young adults to become engaged and caring citizens, advocates for inclusiveness and diversity, contributors to an eco-friendly and sustainable world, supporters of Truth and Reconciliation across Canada, and confident change-makers working towards a brighter future for all.
This fully immersive program brings together 11 diverse young adults who share and manage a Katimavik house while volunteering four days a week at a local charity or not-for-profit. Each group is accompanied by a Project Leader, who resides in the house to mentor the life-changing experience.
