Black Bear Program, Incredible Opportunity for Youth Aged 16+

January 22 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Have we got an opportunity for you!

The Black Bear Program is a summer employment program for indigenous youth, age 16+, that combines culture and teachings with basic military training.  The six-week program takes place from early July to mid-August at 5th Canadian Division Training Centre located in Oromocto, NB.

And get this, participants get paid $4,200! That’s a summer job you won’t find anywhere else.  Meals and accommodations are provided while at the camp, and your transportation to and from Oromocto is covered too.

If you’re ready for a challenging experience that develops hands-on skills, encourages teamwork, improves physical fitness and promotes cultural awareness, get in touch with us to register for an upcoming information session.

Please contact Employment Coordinator Vickie MacDonald at vmacdonald@qalipu.ca
