Youth Programs

Core Neighbourhood Club

Core Neighbourhood Club is designed for youth ages 15 and up. It is run in partnership with Core Neighbourhood Youth Co-op and Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools.  This program is provided at no cost to participants.

Having a safe place to be where youth are exposed to new opportunities and positive adult role models is very important in the healthy development of youth. Programming is participant driven and based on our Vision and Mission, Core Values, and Model for Success.   

In the morning, youth are attending a High School credit class and then attending our programming which includes life skills, wellness, physical activity, employability skill development, cultural activities, homework help etc. The programming is flexible to meet the needs of the youth attending. Youth attending our “class”/program time earn an elective High School credit through Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools.  

Through hands-on learning opportunities, a specific focus on personal interests, goals, and supportive relationships with mentors and volunteers, young people are given the skills and tools they need to be successful in school, work, and life.

For registration information, please contact the program directly.

Youth Employment Program

The Youth Employment Program is a one-week employment experience for youth ages 12 – 18 years. 

Interested youth can apply for a position with the “Clean Up Crew”.  Youth will experience the interview process and successful candidates will be assigned a shift to work at the Saskatoon Exhibition.  Youth will be paid for a mandatory training session held prior to the start of the Saskatoon Exhibition and receive a t-shirt to wear while working their shift during the Ex. Clean Up Crew members are paid minimum wage and must commit to working the entire week of the Saskatoon Exhibition.

At the Saskatoon Exhibition, the youth will clean the pedestrian walkways, parking lots and the grandstand at the park under the supervision of BGC Saskatoon employees. BGC Saskatoon has had a long term partnership with the Saskatoon Prairieland Park Corporation to do the job and we hire approximately 60 youth every summer.  

For most of our youth, this is their first job experience. It’s an opportunity for them to work in a well supervised, supportive environment where they will learn what is expected of them in a job setting.  Afterwards, youth will have a reference for future employment opportunities.  

We appreciate the time and effort all applicants put into their applications; however, due to the limited number of positions available, we regret that we cannot accommodate everyone who applies.
