Request for Expressions of Interest from BC Indigenous Organizations to Host an Indigenous Youth Intern for Summer 2021

The Indigenous Youth Internship Program is seeking Expressions of Interest from BC Indigenous Organizations that can provide supportive, educational and meaningful work placements for Indigenous Youth Interns for a three-month period (June 1, 2021 – August 31, 2021). The Intern’s salary is paid by the provincial government during their work placement in the selected BC Indigenous Organizations.

Indigenous Youth Interns have a wide variety of skills and abilities to offer Indigenous Organizations, including:

  • youth engagement practices,
  • project management,
  • research,
  • conference and event coordination,
  • policy analysis and development,
  • strategic planning,
  • communications,
  • website and manual development,
  • community liaison, and
  • other specific skill sets based on education and experience.

In addition, Indigenous Youth Interns bring valuable knowledge of provincial government programs and processes based on their nine-month placements in Ministries across government.

The placements in Indigenous Organizations can be special organizational roles that involve work on specific projects or programs, including job shadowing opportunities, meeting, conference, and event coordination/attendance, other developmental opportunities, or a combination of these. Interns are seeking structured placements that offer interesting opportunities to assist, learn, and grow as emerging professionals and leaders.

If your Indigenous organization is interested in hosting an Indigenous Youth Intern this summer, please complete the Expression of Interest 2021 template (download below) by March 1, 2021. All organizations that submit Expressions of Interest will be informed of the outcome by mid-April, 2020.
