SEED - Sustainable Employment & Environmental Directions - is a government funded program to help unemployed youth in the lower mainland find and keep a full-time job.
Many SEED participants have limited work experience. Some are even looking to get their first job. Many are new to Canada and most have limited education, either here or from their home country. SEED participants share a common goal of wanting to improve their lives by increasing their employment skills and finding steady employment.
Participants receive a Douglas College Certificate plus several industry training certificates upon completion. To celebrate personal success, a financial bonus is paid to participants who fully complete the SEED program.
SEED participants are paid minimum wage while attending the 5-week classroom training. Additional supports are available for transportation.
To apply for SEED you MUST be:
Classroom Time | Monday – Friday, 9:00 am – 3:00 pm
