Do you want to help save the bees while serving your community and setting yourself up for future success? Join Beea Honey with Heart — a youth-led social enterprise throughout the Halifax Regional Municipality for youth grades 7-12. It’s a fun and meaningful opportunity for personal, professional and community growth.
What you’ll do
As a participant, you will be collecting honey from hives and helping maintain and harvest food from the community garden. You’ll also help package and sell the honey. Not only will you be doing hands-on work, but you will promote the importance of healthy beehives throughout your community. You’ll also participate in workshops on beekeeping, entrepreneurship and environmental issues.
What you’ll get
When you join Beea Honey with Heart, you’ll gain valuable entrepreneurial, leadership and mentoring skills. You will get volunteer hours and noteworthy experience for your resume. You’ll also get a certificate of completion, references from Family SOS, and even the possibility of a college or university scholarship.
Perhaps the coolest thing of all: you’ll be a beekeeper and not only will you make honey, you’ll make a difference.
