Career Readiness & Amazing Volunteer Experience (CRAVE) engages grades 10-12 students from across Manitoba in career exploration and skill building, with a focus on addressing local social issues. Participants research and take on a community service project, and carry out a plan to make a difference.
What We Do
High school students come together for career exploration sessions and skill building workshops. Participants focus on social issues in their community. Their focus could include issues like: the environment, youth homelessness, public safety, mental health, cultural diversity.
Career Trek will take these topics and build career exploration sessions. Participants will learn practical skills, and explore careers related to their interests. They will also connect with community organizations. Groups will then create a community service project to put into action. These projects will be student-led, with support and guidance from Career Trek.
CRAVE participants also attend special events throughout the program which gives them the chance to meet and connect with participants across Manitoba. Youth engage with post-secondary students, entrepreneurs, community leaders, program partners, and other CRAVE participants.
Program activities take place online and/or in person depending on which session you are involved in and dependent on current Manitoba Health recommendations.
