Program 12B: Summer Student Work Experience
There is a need to provide Pimicikamak students with work experience so as to cultivating a mindset of self-sufficiency, and also to provide an increased sense of involvement in the community.
Manitoba Hydro and Manitoba will further strengthen a relationship with Pimicikamak in supporting a cleanup effort in the community of Cross Lake. This student-led initiative will maintain public spaces and recreation facilities in the community to improve the aesthetic quality of the community; provide event preparation, on-site support and clean up to community events; and provide short term employment for Pimicikamak students. Besides gaining valuable work experience, students will benefit from an increased involvement in their community, and this helps promote intergenerational relationships, knowledge transfer, and support.
