UPDATE – COREKids Youth Achievers Program

The COREKids Youth Achievers program has been paused due to COVID. The COREKids Youth Achievers Program is a series of after school and in school 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.
