In partnership with Clean, impact organizations invest in training and employment for current and full-time students in clean tech and environmental jobs from May to August. We help equip Clean Leaders with the knowledge and aptitude to become leaders in their communities while delivering meaningful environmental projects during 15-week post-secondary internships, 15-week Aboriginal Leadership internships, and 9-week summer internships.
By tapping into a student’s journey mid-way through school, our training + internship program offers exposure and experiential learning in new green career path opportunities – while giving young minds the tools they need for future success.
Non-profit community organizations, municipalities, and other community groups that provide meaningful work experience in the environmental field for youth age 15 to 30 are eligible to apply to be hosts for the Clean Leadership summer program. All projects must include an educational component and have an environmental benefit. The program does not consider projects that are of direct economic benefit to a group.
Hosts are responsible for at least 25% of the wage expense for the Clean Leaders. The wage for students is at least $0.50 more than the provincial minimum wage. The finalized cost breakdown will be provided during the full application process.
