Opportunity for High School Children of CBTU Affiliate Members - Forum for Young Canadians

As part of our ongoing commitment to member service and value we have negotiated a sponsorship for 3 CBTU family member children to take part in an important initiative for High School students as part of the program of the FYC.

 If you have a high school age child or relative (grandchild)  please have them complete this application form and forward to our office -  we will then select candidate’s to fill  the three CBTU family spots at the Forum this winter. 

The final selection will be made by the FYC. CBTU will provide up to $2,000 / student which includes travel to Ottawa and the registration fee for the program.  The details are in the brochure. 

The student must write a short letter indicating why they are motivated to participate in the  Forum for Young Canadians and a short resume outlining their community involvement.  In many provinces community involvement is now mandatory for high school credit. If selected by FYC, the students will have to get their Teacher/Principal to sign the permission form to miss class. 

Please either mail or email the attached form to Julie Lanois at jlanois@buildingtrades.ca and then we will forward it to the FYC. 

These are due to us by January 13, 2017 and to FYC by January 20, 2017. Please indicate in the  letter of interest to the FYC that you are a CBTU family member!

You can find the entry form here, and more information on the program here on the Forum for Young Canadians website.
