Participating in Building Young Entrepreneurs

How it Works

BYE 2024 – Green Jobs of the Future has three phases:



This phase takes place monthly with core and ongoing workshops including topics on the following topics :  

  • Future of Work and the Entrepreneurship Mindset

  • Digital engagement for Nature Based climate solutions   

  • + any suggested topics from the pre-surveys  

Our workshops are geared towards building skills and facilitating a learning space for you. Workshops are created to help you find support and grow towards your personal goals. We are also facilitating learning by sharing our experiences, resources and extra course materials on our digital platforms.    



This phase pairs participants with industry professionals, or community members to help integrates the workshop content into practice and to provide guidance and feedback during early stages of your career and job searching.  


Work Experience

At the end of our programming, we will offer a Work Experience Assistance component which may result paid work-integrated learning experience for some participants. These paid work experiences are dependent on availability and compatibility of youth to hosting organizations.
