Community Futures will engage with at least 30 not-for-profits (NFPs) and develop at least 4 direct partnerships to expand the awareness of Work-Integrated Learning (WIL) among the non-profit and small and medium enterprises (SME) community in Northern BC. The aim is to reduce barriers to WIL for NFPs in rural and remote regions. Community Futures will develop modules to support both students and NFPs engaging in meaningful WIL that they hope to share across the country.
The newly created WIL opportunities will be populated by diverse students from the College of New Caledonia (CNC) and the University of Northern BC (UNBC). They will be paired with non-profits to complete an Applied Research Project.
