SOLDIER FOR A DAY 2015 - A 5 Hour Work Study Program - Information

February 19, 2015


Please see Ms Devlin in the Career Resource Room for Application Forms 

5 Hour Work Study Program - Information


The Army Reserve in BC has been offering a work study program in various forms since 1996. In that time, over 600 students from various secondary schools in the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley have participated in this program. Many Students come back to participate in the program a second time and it has become a favourite event for participating instructors.


The Soldier for a Day 5 hour work study program will show students how a soldier in the Army Reserve is trained and what they do when they are working for the Canadian Forces. Students will be given the opportunity to see some of the vehicles and equipment that we use as well as have the opportunity to be given basic instruction in marching. They will also get a closer look at the educational and job opportunities offered by some of Vancouver’s Army Reserve units.  These units include:


·         The British Columbia Regiment

·         The 15th Field Artillery Regiment

·         The 39th Combat Engineer Regiment

·         The Seaforth Highlanders of Canada

·         The Royal Westminster Regiment

·         39 Signals Regiment

·         39 Service Battalion


The program is designed to be a fun way for students to gain work experience hours while learning more about the role of the Army Reserve both here in Canada and around the world.
