This is a call out for interest to attend the BC Federation of Labour’s Camp Jubilee – Young Workers Retreat from June 10-12, 2011.
The PSAC has once again approved funding to support young members from BC to attend. This is an annual retreat that is both fun and a great opportunity to meet other young workers wanting to learn more about their trade union movement!
Workshops that will be offered include:
- Mobilizing Young Workers
- Introduction to the Labour Movement
- Green Jobs and Environmental Justice
- Political Action
PSAC members selected to attend must commit to sharing what they experienced through a “Retreat Report Back”, ideas include submitting photos with captions to help explain what took place, a short youtube video that you create while at Camp Jubilee, basically something that we can share with others in the Young Worker Caucus on-line!
To be eligible to apply you must be a member of the PSAC and be 30 years of age or younger. Please send your expression of interest to Monica Urruita by midnight May 8th, with a paragraph of up to 300 words describing your involvement in PSAC young worker activities; any community involvement for young workers; and why you are interested in attending.
Please feel free to indicate whether you identify as a member of an equity group, i.e. lesbian or bisexual; aboriginal; racially visible; or a member with a disability. (This is optional.)
Please also provide your contact information and your membership number.
The deadline for expressions of interest is midnight, May 8th. Here is the BC Federation of Labour poster and conference call which has more information regarding the retreat itself.
If you are seeking funding support from the PSAC please do not register directly with the BC Federation of Labour. Fill out the registration form and send it to my office via email or fax with your short paragraph. If you are a successful applicant, the PSAC will submit your registration forms to the BC Federation of Labour on your behalf by their registration deadline.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Monica Urrutia.
