Aboriginal Youth Internship Program
Host an Intern
Help shape the future of our province by welcoming a young Aboriginal leader to your organization for a work term! They'll become a valued member of your team and you'll help them in their career development.
Interns possess a wide range of skills that can be deployed in many ways:
- Youth engagement practices
- Project management
- Environmental scans and database development
- Policy analysis and development
- Conference and event coordination
- Website and manual development
- Community liaison
B.C. Government Ministries
Ministry placements vary from year to year and include diverse work assignments in Victoria, Vancouver, and other regional locations.
The Aboriginal Youth Internship Program will annually seek expressions of interest from B.C. Aboriginal organizations that can provide supportive, educational, and meaningful work placements for Aboriginal youth interns during the summer months. The interns will be seconded to selected organizations from June to August, with the interns' salary covered by the provincial government during the work placement. Aboriginal youth interns will be matched with the selected Aboriginal organizations based on their interests, qualifications, education, experience, skills and location.
Requests for expressions of interest to host an Aboriginal intern occur every year from January to February.
