Youth Programs & Workshops
A summer firefighting mentorship program for female youth in Grades 11 & 12 from across British Columbia.
Vancouver Fire Rescue Services (VFRS) Youth Outreach Academy is a 5-day program that gives students the opportunity to experience the career training and work practice of a Vancouver Firefighter.
The Youth Academy is meant to be fun but is also a learning experience that will be challenging both mentally and physically. If you have any questions, please contact either your career counsellor at school or the Assistant Chief Community and Administrative Services at the Fire Department.
With the growing popularity of the Camp Ignite Mentorship Program, there was an obvious need to provide similar programs in other regions of the province. Creating an Island Ignite will make the program more accessible to Vancouver Island youth and will allow departments on Vancouver Island to host and support this great program. We hope to launch our first program in the Summer of 2023. Contact details are available on the website.
