New for 2018 – CORE Kids Youth Achievers Program

The Core Kids Youth Achievers Program is a series of after school and summer activities where children in grades 6, 7 & 8 have an opportunity to gain new skills and experiences —things that help children thrive and grow in mind and body. The programs provide practical leadership and skills building while promoting and encouraging ongoing learning and the importance of goal setting and post- secondary education and careers.

Activities and programs delivered under Youth Achievers are:

Career Exploration: Career exploration and leadership program teach elementary school students about possible occupations and careers. Exploration days will introduce students to various careers through professional guest speakers, guest instructors and career exploration activities and excursions. Exploration days offer the soft-skills and workplace experience youth will need for the future. Career exploration days will provide students with a better understanding of their choices and career options and the education required to succeed.

 CORE Stores Experience: The economics and experience of operating a business. Youth participating in this activity will learn the skills involved in operating a venture. All aspects of operating a venture will be part of this hands-on-learning experience. Youth will assist in planning, set-up and operating CORE Store opportunities to provide planning, teamwork and retail skills. In addition to giving back to their local community. CORE Store experiences will include seasonal events that will provide participants with hands-on-experiences.
