Career Readiness & Amazing Volunteer Experience (CRAVE) runs in partnership with Manitoba high schools and community groups. CRAVE engages high school students 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 a youth conference during the session. This 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 in person. To ensure the safety of participants and staff, we are currently offering CRAVE entirely online.
CRAVE participants will have access to live-streamed sessions, recorded videos, and a digital resources library.
