Tervita is proud to sponsor the Boys and Girls Club of Calgary (BGCC) Stampede Cleanup Crew—aka the Tervita Green Team! During the 10 days of “The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth,” the team is focused on keeping the grounds waste-free for all the visitors. We supply all workers and supervisors with gloves, t-shirts and hats to ensure the clean up is done in a safe and hygienic way – something we stand by every day at Tervita.
The BGCC is a charitable, community supported, organization that helps more than 11,000 vulnerable children and youth in Calgary, AB. The Stampede Cleanup Crew is part of the BGCC Work Experience Program and provides youth ages 13-18 the opportunity to gain valuable work experience.
This is the first paid job for many of the youth and the program typically receives over 1,000 applications with just 270 youth were selected to be a part of the crew. In addition to job application and work experience, the program allows youth to meet others and make a positive impact.
