Saskatchewan Co-operative Youth Program
Since 1928 the Saskatchewan Co-operative Youth Program has been a leader and innovator in the field of Co-operative Youth Education. Often referred to as Co-op Camp, the program creates a safe and welcoming environment in which youth can be themselves. Through interactive and engaging activities young people gain an increased understanding of co-operatives and credit unions, and the skills and self-confidence to become co-operative members, employees, and leaders in their communities.
New Learning Resource Available!
Saskatchewan Co-operative Association and Public Legal Education Association (PLEA) have teamed up to create a new learning resource for Grade 8 Social Studies. All 4 Each: A Unit to Empower Co-operative Consciousness, explores the legal and organizational frameworks of co-operatives. Using a Saskatchewan context, it is specifically designed to meet learning outcomes of the new Social Studies 8 curriculum. The resource is available at no charge to teachers across Saskatchewan or can be downloaded here.
