Saanich Youth Services is committed to be a leader in building developmental assets in young people. One significant way we desire to impact youth is through our leadership continuum. This is an opportunity for a young person to learn valuable leadership skills, be mentored in a recreation environment, gain practical work experience and have the potential to gain employment in our department.
