Program Information

The Youth@BC project is a partnership between the province, youth, public libraries and corporations to provide young people with summer work opportunities in B.C. community libraries. Through this government project, students have been hired at each participating library to develop Web pages and to implement Internet training programs for the general public.

Along with providing summer employment and technical skill enhancement for students, a final product of the Youth@BC project will be Internet training available to all members of the general public. This program will allow citizens without home computers or personal connections to the Internet to still have access to the Internet and other computer related resources.

This project is part of the Youth Options BC provincial initiative that will create up to 17,000 new job and training positions for young people this year. Youth@BC was also made possible by the program contributors, mentoring corporations, and program sponsors listed below.
