School and Community Working Together
To Build Better Futures
"When we were approached by Foundations staff to become involved, the company didn't hesitate. We looked at it and thought "why wouldn't we do something like this? It's part of our commitment to the community." We've sponsored several Foundations students. Some were hired and continue to work at our Langley facility. We've been pleased with the students and the support provided by Foundations Program staff."

“The Foundations Program is a unique program. Surrey School District staff and the community work together to help young people to prepare for a career. When I visit the program, I'm always impressed with the potential that I see in these students. I would encourage all employers to consider sponsoring a student through the Foundations Program."

"We have been involved with the Surrey School District's Foundations Program since September, 2009. Foundations students have completed work experience placements at our Port Kells site and they assist with small packaging jobs throughout the school year. The Foundations Program is changing lives and providing hope to many young people who may otherwise face bleak futures. It's a pleasure to support the Foundations Program.”
