Applications are now OPEN for Teen Leadership Camp 2018!
Teen Leadership Camp @ 541 is an amazing volunteer opportunity for local teens offered by 541 every summer. Participants will be given the opportunity to volunteer for 4-5 days and get a feel for what it is like to work in a cafe setting. Every day of TLC will involve training in a variety of activities that are crucial to the day-to-day operations of 541 Eatery & Exchange, such as customer service, dish-washing, kitchen preparation, and general cleaning. All hours will be able to be used towards community service hours required for high school graduation. Every day will run from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm and will include a lunch break, during which you will get to enjoy something from our delicious menu “on the house” as a thank you for your hard work during the day.

Applicants will have the option of applying for one of two specialized streams:
CHRISTIAN SERVICE EXPERIENCE:
Each day you will be involved in an assortment of tasks: food prep, customer service, dish-washing, etc. In addition, each shift will also include a small group, scripture-based discussion with other teens, as directed by one of our youth outreach staff, designed to explore possible connections between serving others and spiritual growth.
Each day a large percentage of your day will be spent in the kitchen working on food preparation. You will work under the supervision and direction of our Program Chef. This is an excellent opportunity for someone considering the culinary arts as a potential career option.
As a special offering this week, we will be running a Soccer Camp for kids ages 8-12 the week of August 20th-24th. If you apply for the week of Soccer Camp, you and a few other teens will spend the week helping with the soccer camp and assisting with the associated setup, cleanup and food prep.
We are all full for the 2018 season and not taking any more applicants at this time.
For any questions please email 541’s youth outreach worker Eric O’Neil at youth(at)fivefortyone.ca.
