Get outside B.C. program application deadline extended

May 09, 2014 - 12:08 PM

There’s a bit more time now for Central Okanagan high school students with an interest and passion for the outdoors to apply for the Get Outside BC outdoor leadership program.

The deadline for getting your application in has been extended to Wednesday, May 14th and you can apply online at www.getoutsidebc.ca.

Successful applicants from the Central Okanagan will take part in the Youth Leadership Summit, July 6th to 11th in Squamish.  As a natural leader you’ll build outdoor leadership skills, event planning skills and learn about cool green jobs while networking with 30 other young people from across the province.  Then you’ll take the experiences learned from the summit and host an outdoor event or community project here in the Central Okanagan.

If you have a passion for the outdoors and a desire to get more youth participating in outdoor activities and events, this program is for you!

For more information about the program visit the BC Chapter of the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society website:  http://cpawsbc.org/campaigns/get-outside-bc or contact the Central Okanagan Regional Coordinator Leslie Finley with Regional Parks Services at 250-469-6263.
