Youth and COVID-19

​The suspension of classes in all Manitoba schools has meant even more disruption in the lives of families over the last several weeks. This is a challenging time for many families. To help ease the burden of coming up with ​​ideas to engage your kids and teens during this pandemic, we offer the following resources and activities:
  • Young Worker Readiness Certificate Course​ - Increase your awareness and understanding of what constitutes a safe, healthy, productive and respectful workplace. Young workers: Complete this online, job-readiness course prior to working. Youth aged 13 to 15 are required to take this course before they start working.
  • Norm the Safety Contest - SAFE Work Manitoba invites students in Grades 9-12 to tap into their superhero creativity and create projects that show young Manitobans how to Make Safety the Norm. First place wins $2,500! Stay tuned for 2021 dates.​
  • Farm Safety Drawing Contest - We’re looking for kids between the ages of 6 to12 from across the province to draw us their interpretation of one of four safety topics…and in return, we’re offering them a chance to win an iPad! Stay tuned for 2021 dates.​
We also have a variety of resources specifically designed for young workers, employers/supervisors, family and educators to help ​keep young workers safe on the job. Visit our Young Worker toolkit​ to learn more.​
