Find Work

We know how to tough it can be for young people to find work out there. A common challenge goes something like this: the job you want requires experience, but how are you supposed to have experience in a job you're trying to get? We get it and we're here to help.

The City's Youth Employment and Career Development Strategy has three primary objectives:

  • To help young people gain work experience and exposure to City functions and projects;
  • To facilitate the school-to-work transition by helping students draw relevant skills and knowledge from their education and apply these in the workplace; and,
  • To demonstrate leadership by showcasing City initiatives and engaging community stakeholders and businesses to provide career opportunities for young people.

Current Employment & Volunteer Opportunities

Below is a list of current job and volunteer opportunities for youth in North Vancouver. Be sure to check the YWCA Work BC website for more information.
