Youth Energy Safe

When it comes to staying safe, you’re never too young to learn the basics! Our Youth Energy Safe program brings tools and teachings from the field into the classroom for instructors and youth to learn how to stay safe around utilities at home, school and in their communities.

From pipelines to fibre optic cable, all utilities provide essential services which can have serious consequences if damaged. Interactive games and presentations can be adapted for ages 8-18 to turn a dry subject into fun activities, creating a memorable and fun learning experience for all involved.

Safe digging could reward you with $1000!

TC Energy would like to recognize youth from not-for-profit organizations such as Girl Guides, FFA and 4-H for committing to safe digging practices. Our goal is to teach the next generation the importance of calling/clicking before digging.

If your youth-focused organization is going to be conducting a digging project such as planting trees, installing a mailbox or fence, or building a deck, requesting a locate beforehand could earn you money.

Request a Kit

TC Energy’s Youth Energy Safe school kits were developed over three years of research and collaboration with teachers and students. The kits help educate youth by providing underground utility safety information using unique classroom components specific to either children or teens.

Please note that these are only available in the United States and Canada for schools and organizations located near TC Energy pipelines and facilities. You can find maps of TC Energy assets here. Unfortunately, we cannot include homeschools at this time.
