Community and youth are at the heart of the PNE, so for us it made complete sense to develop a PNE Youth Council. The council’s objective is to provide local teens a unique opportunity to learn how a successful business operates and to nurture future business leaders of Vancouver.
Each year we select a group of 12 teens in grades 11 and 12 to join the Youth Council and we provide them key insights into the inner workings, business decisions and operational strategies of the PNE. The group gets access to our top leadership team and also have the chance to work on a major campaign or initiative, like a new ride or attractions launch or a special promotional day. The major takeaway for the students though, beyond having a great time, meeting like minded youth, attending a Vancouver Giants game, Playland, The Fair, and Fright Nights and working on a cool campaign, is that they leave the program gaining business contacts, learning teamwork and leadership skills and they get to provide a voice for the community.
