Envision Financial Leadership Community Program

Envision Financial, a division of First West Credit Union. We are currently recruiting for a student leadership/employment opportunity . We are looking for enthusiastic students, likely those in a leadership type program, to join our Community Crew program. This is an excellent opportunity for students to gain leadership skills, give back to the community by helping out at various non-profit organizations and events, and to gain quality work experience. This is our fifth year running the program, but fourth year running it full round due to how successful it was! The hours are approximately 30 hours a week in the summer months, with one day a week dedicated to a paid internship at a local non-profit organization and the rest of the hours attending local community events to interact with families and children while working along Marketing and Branch teams. During school months students will have the opportunity to work approximately 2-3 times a month as their schedule allows. This year our program will be led by myself, and will consist of a crew of 4-5 students from the grades 10 through 12. Here is some information on last year’s program: https://www.envisionfinancial.ca/community-leadership

Please see below the detailed description of this opportunity, and link for applications. If you have any questions or would like to discuss please feel free to contact me. We encourage all applications to be sent in as soon as possible, !
