Youth Board

History

The inaugural meeting of the Minnedosa Credit Union Youth Board of directors was held June 10, 1992.  A first of its kind in Canada, the idea was implemented through the efforts of the Minnedosa Credit Union and Minnedosa Collegiate staff.  25 plus years later the project is still going strong.

Youth from the community are encouraged to apply in their grade 10 year.  After an interview process, the selection committee appoints students to a two year term beginning in their grade 11 year. 

Meetings are held monthly.  Skill development on proper execution of a board meeting, presentations from community members on such topics as small business enterprise, budgeting and communications are presented during these sessions.  The Board members also are responsible for school store which offers supplies and logo’ d clothing for both staff and students.

Still very active today, the program is led by 3 Credit Union staff members and a school liaison who act as training officers.

Members are recognized for their two year effort with a certificate and a bursary after one year of post-secondary or vocational training.
