Manitoba’s minister responsible for child and youth opportunities Kevin Chief was in Flin Flon Friday as part of his provincial tour. Chief says he’s visiting Youth Job Centers to see what’s happening across the province. He says that happened when he visited the local Youth Employment Leader Lana Leclerc and two young guys came in who are part of the Odd Job Squad and making some money doing window washing. He says they came in happy and told him about the great summer they’re having. He says Lana was telling him about some of the great initiatives that are going on that are very unique to Flin Flon so it’s a great learning experience for him and he wants to continue as they are hoping as a government to continue the tradition of young people getting great summer work.
Chief says they want young people to access the services that are available to build some skills and have something to put on their resumes.
