CSCSC looking for classroom volunteers

Tell students about supply chain industry careers


MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO: The Canadian Supply Chain Sector Council (CSCSC) is looking for volunteers to teach students about careers in supply chain.

CSCSC and Junior Achievement Canada (JA) are sending supply chain professionals into classrooms across Canada to talk about supply chain and the profession. While CSCSC is happy to take volunteers from all provinces and territories, right now the biggest need is for people from Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario.

CSCSC sees this program as providing a win-win benefit to all involved.

The students you reach will learn about supply chain, and develop skills in teamwork, decision-making, problem-solving, communication and critical thinking. By working with JA, volunteers will demystify supply chain careers for young people as they consider their future paths.

As a volunteer, you—and your employer—will also benefit from participation in a JA program. Delivering a program helps elevate presentation, communication and leadership abilities, thereby providing training through the volunteering experience.

For those who don’t have the time to get involved, donations are also being accepted to help support the program.
