Junior Playworkers Program

We invite local youth to join us for our Junior Playworker program. This volunteer program sees local teens working in our afternoon Adventure Clubs, assisting our Playworkers. In addition to gaining exposure to Playwork and Forest School approaches and working with kids, as well as basic safety training, youth gain valuable work experience and employment skills. We will provide a letter of reference, should the program be completed successfully. Youth must be available between 4-6PM on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, OR Thursday, for a period of three months, and be able to meet us on-site at Mont Royal or the Champ des Possibles.
