The APEGBC Victoria branch is looking for leaders who are willing to share their knowledge and inspire young minds with the opportunities a future in engineering or geoscience can bring. Learn more about becoming a career awareness volunteer and the Victoria Branch’s school outreach activities in this training session. Volunteers will also be able to add their names to the list of volunteers available to conduct outreach in the Victoria area. 
Participants of this interactive session will learn leadership skills to help them engage in career outreach. These skills include outlining the difference between a manger and a leader, qualities of a leader, how to lead inclusively, and how to facilitate a discussion. The volunteers will be divided into groups and be tasked with designing an activity or a problem for students. Each group will present its activity and the most feasible, interesting, and inclusive (of all engineering disciplines and geoscience) activity will be considered for use at future career outreach school visits. High school presentations will take place from Oct 2016 - Feb 2017 with numerous opportunities with private and public schools. 

The APEGBC Victoria Branch would like to highlight the diversity of our professions through these presentations. We encourage female engineers and geoscientists as well as internationally trained professionals to volunteer.
