Now in its 7th year, the Adventures in the Port of Prince Rupert program offers students a chance to see, first-hand, the inner workings of North America's fastest growing marine port. It provides a unique opportunity for students to meet future employers, see industry in action and learn of career opportunities available to them.
Every year the program changes slightly but typically sites visited include: BC Ferries, DP World, Ridley Terminals, Prince Rupert Grain, Quickload Logisitics, Saam Smit Marine, Canadian Coast Guard, AltaGas, Pinnacle Renewable Resources, Raymont Logistics, Western Canada Marine Response Corp, Broadwater Industries, Tidal Coast Terminals and the Prince Rupert Port Authority. As you can see, there is a lot to see and do over the 3 days of the program.
The program is open to all students in Grades 9-12. Given the wide range of industry/businesses participating in the program there is something to appeal to both vocational and academic interests. To give students the greatest opportunity to see “behind the scenes” the number of participants is capped at 18. Applications are available at the school (see your counselor).
Students selected to participate in the program do so at no cost. All program related costs are covered by the Rotary Club sponsoring the student. Selected students are required to participate in all 3 days of the program. The program runs from approximately 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM daily.
All students are expected to participate in after program activities (TBD) planned for the first and second nights.
Out of town students will be billeted with Rotary families in the Prince Rupert area for the duration of the program.
