There are two intake groups of students who will make up the seats available in 2019.
Once the initial student registration and parents waiver, etc. are returned by the sponsoring club we will be in contact with them immediately by the email provided to confirm receipt. From that time forward all communication will go directly to the student and parents(provided there are multiple emails provided). There will be a more detailed application form sent to them to complete and return directly to Adventures in Health Care.
The 2019 program will expect all youth to be in Prince George by 6:00 p.m. May 5 for orientation which includes registration and dinner.
The program will finish Thursday, May 9, 2019 at 8:00 p.m.
The program sees more Rotary clubs from further afield participating. One of the biggest organizing challenges is to ensure that students arrive and depart in a timely manner, meeting the needs of not only the students but the parents that have to drop them off and pick them up. Yellowhead Rotary understands that although the Adventures program is important, so is school and family.
The assumption is that over 500 kilometres the students will travel by air. Suggested air flights are available for download here.
Our club struggled for years literally hunting for students before we connected with our school district a few years ago. The Career Programs staff at School District 57 worked with us to develop a program to market and interview prospective applicants. Our numbers exploded from 5 to over fifty, and ALL were great applications. If you would like to learn more about how to reach your youth, we can help.
