PROFILE: Community MicroSkills Development

 

MicroSkills - Helping You Build A Better Future

Microskills Youth Services hosts a summer camp that focuses on leadership and the arts, open to youth ages 13-18 years old. Founded in 1985, the program was initially created for women, to teach them skills in technology. Later, it developed into a program that taught newcomers. Ten years ago, it became the program it is now; an arts and leadership camp for youth.

Through the skills and experience gained from this camp, campers will learn more of Canadian culture and have the necessary skills to enter the workforce in the future.
