Why Should You Participate?

Where and When does Project Now Take Place?

2021-2022 Whistler Secondary School
Currently we are planning to run our second round of ProjectNOW with the Whistler Secondary School EcoClub starting in the fall of 2022. Please reach out the to program coordinator if you’re interested in participating and for more information.

Not a WSS Student?
Unfortunately, we are currently only offering this program through local high schools and not directly to the public. That said, if you think this program sounds like something you and your friends would enjoy, then we have a couple options:

  1. Talk to your teacher(s) and/or school principal(s) about the program and ask them to get in touch with the program coordinator about running a session.
  2. Email the program coordinator yourself with the following details and have us reach out to your school:
    • Your name & age
    • Name of the school you would like to see this program offered at
    • Your teachers name & email
  3. Find a large group of friends aged 14-18 (ideally 12 or more individuals) and email the program coordinator to discuss the possibility of running a course direct rather than through a school.

Current Program Coordinator: Taniell Hamilton

  • Attend all mandatory sessions laid out in the program schedule
  • Participate in conversations with your team and/or mentor outside of sessions
  • Track all the hours you spend on this program (these will be considered volunteer hours!)
  • Participate in surveys throughout the program and tell us your honest opinion of the sessions!
