YOUTH CLIMATE CORPS BC FOCUS AREAS
Your community has a robust climate focus and has identified climate mitigation and adaptation projects or has a climate action plan that needs to be prioritized.
We are here and ultra-motivated to support you in realizing your goals by co-creating the Youth Climate Corps of your community. Climate change is the greatest challenge for youth. We will support you in creating a program that empowers young people to inspire and implement solutions to the climate crisis through employment, training, and leadership development.
Below are Youth Climate Corps BC focus areas in climate action with which we can create real impacts together in your community.
Local Food Security
We reinforce your local food security by helping producers and distributors in your community.
Through simple retrofitting youth enhance homes, buildings and manufacturing facilities so they use less energy to function.
Wildfire Risk Reduction
Your community can become better fire-adapted. By training a youth workforce that knows how to mitigate wildfire risk reduction.
Youth Leadership Development
Leadership development helps expand the capacity of youth to perform in leadership roles within a disruptive world. By building resilience we empower youth within your community.
Completely integrated into your community we build the network and create the links between the different specialists. We contribute meaningfully to your community’s activities and develop functional capabilities that enable youth to participate fully.
We help reverse the degradation of the ecosystems in your environment, such as landscapes, lakes and oceans to regain their ecological functionality.
Part of the curriculum is to help youth understand and address the impacts of the climate crisis, empowering them with the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes needed to act as agents of change.
In Youth Climate Corps, crew members are between 17-29 years old; they earn wages, gain work experience, build networks, and develop themselves personally and professionally. Meanwhile, they complete projects that both benefit their own communities and support global efforts to act on the climate crisis.
If you or your organization wants to learn more about how to team up with us and move forward on projects in your community, or if you are interested in funding one of our projects related to our different focus areas, we are here to support you.
