After almost three years in the naval reserves, Kelvin Beaudoin says the experience is worth more than the money. An able seaman, the first-year philosophy and sociology student works as a resource management support clerk at the HMCS Hunter.
“For my trade, many of the skills I’m learning now are transferable to civilian jobs,” Beaudoin says. “I’ve learned communication, organization and team working skills.”
He is paid for his work, but also received $2,000 toward his university tuition.
