For Youth

Here at Green Venture, we aim to support the eco-journeys of local youth. Our Youth Programs offer an abundance of opportunities for high school students looking to get involved in their communities, young professionals seeking to develop professional skills, and budding environmentalists exploring how they can take climate action. Join us!

Green Venture YouthQuake

Our YouthQuake program is for those between the ages of 14 and 24 looking for a place to engage in environmental conversation and stewardship. At our bi-weekly meetings, we discuss current environmental news, learn about stewardship and volunteer opportunities, offer support in running your own stewardship projects, and hear from guest speakers chosen by the group.

To join, email youth@greenventure.ca with the subject “I want to join Green Venture YouthQuake”.

Youth Stewardship Program

The Youth Stewardship Program is for eco-minded Grade 11 and 12 students that are looking for a way to make a difference in their local environment! While completing a stewardship project that will benefit the planet, participants can also earn up to 20 community service hours, gain valuable professional skills and meet other Hamiltonian high-school-aged environmentalists.

Congratulations to all the successful applicants for our spring 2022 session: Rethink to Reduce Waste! The  program will run from the week of February 28th to that of June 13th.
