Lunch and Learn – SkillsPEI summer student programs

Employers from the private and non-profit sectors wishing to learn more about SkillsPEI’s summer student programs for 2024, including Jobs for Youth and the Post-Secondary Student Program, are invited to attend a lunch-and-learn at the Wellington Rural Action Centre (RAC) on Thursday, Feb. 22, at 12 noon. Interested parties may attend in person or online via Zoom.

This event is being cohosted by the Wellington RAC and the Acadian and Francophone Chamber of Commerce of PEI. A light meal will be served to those in attendance. The presentation will be given in English.

Robin Dann, program officer intern with SkillsPEI’s Charlottetown office, will give an overview of the programs and explain how employers and students can qualify to participate in or benefit from them. Since beginning with SkillsPEI in the summer of 2019, Dann has worked in almost every program the agency offers; she is currently leading the Post-Secondary Student Program.

Jobs for Youth, delivered through the Employment Development Agency (EDA), supports students aged 15-29 working 8-12 weeks during summer. Participating students must be returning to school in the fall.
