Description

Soldier for a Day

Information

The Army Reserve in BC has been offering a work study programme in various forms since 1996. In that time, over 1000 students from various secondary schools in the lower Mainland and Fraser Valley have participated in this programme. Many students come back to participate a second time and it has become a favourite event for participating instructors.

What is Soldier for a Day?

The Soldier for a Day program is six and a half hour event, that will show participants how a soldier in the Army Reserve is trained and what they do when they are working for the Canadian Armed Forces. Participants will be given the opportunity to be given basic instruction in Marching, Weapons handling, Individual Kit, Rappelling, Communications Systems, Basic Field Skills, Chemical defence, Engineering Displays, and Technical Trades. They will also get a closer look at the educational and career opportunities offered by some of the Fraser Valley and Lower mainland Army Reserve units.

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