BC Youth Week returns May 1-7, 2018 with events happening all around the province. This is an internationally celebrated event that aims to recognize the positive contributions youth make in our communities and to celebrate the valuable work youth and youth organizations do all year round. Since its inception in 1995, BC Youth Week has grown to include over 30 municipalities and non-profit organizations in BC.

BC Youth Week

The BC Youth Week Committee coordinates the logistics of Youth Week in BC; however, the youth themselves help to plan the actual events that take place in each area. This is a very unique aspect of Youth Week, as one of BC Youth Week’s goals is to encourage youth to take an active role in their education, recreation, and personal development.

“BC Youth Week is a natural fit. This partnership allows WorkSafeBC to empower youth by giving them knowledge and resources about their rights and responsibilities for when they enter the workforce. WorkSafeBC is proud to be involved with BC Youth Week for another year, and we look forward to empowering even more youth than ever before.”
Robin Schooley, WorkSafeBC Representative
