Still time for a few extra contracts for Youth Services Co-op

coop service jeunesselowresABRAM-VILLAGE – Aug. 17, 2016 – The young members of The Hard Workers Youth Services Co-op have had a really busy summer – one of the busiest ever, in fact! They however still have the time to accept a few more contracts between now and the end of the summer.

Stéphane Blanchard, RDÉE Prince Edward Island’s development officer responsible for the co-op, says this year’s members mowed lawns; painted fences, a patio and a garage door; built small picnic tables and washer games; stacked chopped wood; weeded gardens; did some landscaping; and did various other odd jobs.

“The youth will continue working until the end of August, as long a people from the Evangeline region keep giving them work to do,” adds Blanchard. “They truly appreciate all the work the community has given them so far.”

These contracts help the youth, aged 12-17 years, to gain work experience and to earn a bit of spending money.

To retain the services of one or more of the 12 youth, please contact their coordinator Jake Arsenault at



CUTLINE: Brady Corkum, Maria Arsenault and Thomas Arsenault, along with the other members of The Hard Workers Youth Services Co-op, want to keep serving their community for the rest of the summer by doing all kinds of odd jobs.
