Calling Delta students – do you want to spend your summer making friends, working on your leadership skills, growing, cooking and eating yummy food?
If you are in grades 9 to 12, consider joining Fresh Roots for a unique six-week summer leadership and employment program.
Based out of the Farm Roots Mini School program, the SOYL program empowers youth to steward the schoolyard farm located at 6570 1A Avenue in Delta (Boundary Bay).
The focus is on learning, community building, and growing “Good Food for All”. Upon successful completion of the program you will receive a $600 stipend.
This is a full day program that runs July 4 to Aug. 11, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Mondays to Thursdays.
In this program you will work with your peers developing interpersonal and teamwork skills as you work in the SOYL program components.
Students will further develop their communication, self-regulation, and decision-making skills, while also engaging in goal-setting activities.
To apply, see more details on the Delta School District website at: https://www.deltasd.bc.ca.
