Programs for teens
Following is a list of programs for teens offered by the City of Dorval.
Adventure Quest Camp
Details to come in spring.
Are you looking for a casual job or a way to earn a little extra pocket money?
Would you like to gain work experience?
Here is a great solution for you: the Job Co-Op.
The Job Co-Op is an odd-job employment service offered
to Dorval residents, which links up teens, who are interested in earning a
little extra money, with citizens who need to have some work done in their
homes. This can include lawn mowing, babysitting, snow removal, raking,
painting, gardening, cleaning, and so forth.
If you are looking for work and a rewarding
experience, drop by the Sarto-Desnoyers Community Centre or the Surrey Aquatic
and Community Centre and fill out an application form. If you are a resident
who needs to have some work done in your home, call 514 633-4000 and we will
put you in contact with a willing worker.

Youth Advisory Committee
In light of the difficulty to reach teens in an informal forum, the City of Dorval created, on November 7, 1988, the Youth Advisory Committee, which regroups a maximum of 15 young Dorval residents. By meeting approximately four times per year, the members of the committee discuss about youth related projects, make their recommendations to the Council, and are involved in the planning, development, and implementation of programs and activities relating to their needs. They also gain valuable experience by volunteering at various events throughout the community.
All Dorval residents, between the age of 12 and 17, are eligible to become members of the Youth Advisory Committee. For more information on how to join, call 514 633-4000.
