Youth Internship Program
2020 Youth internship
Synergy will be accepting applications for a variety of Volunteer Youth Internship positions in Spring of 2021! Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the start date of all positions and responsibilities will be subject to change on short notice, with some duties requiring parent/guardian permission if under 18.
The Youth Internship Program is designed for youth ages 15-21 and will provide you with relevant training and job skills.
Typically, Youth Interns receive First Aid (CPR) accreditation, High Five Principles of Healthy Child Development certification, and attend workshops on topics such as Resume and Cover Letter writing, Diversity Training, Financial Literacy, and Microsoft Office (Word, Excel). For the 2020 year, due to COVID-19, Synergy is unable to guarantee which training will be available, but we are committed to providing a wide variety of meaningful learning experiences. Depending on what funding is available, some training may be provided at cost.
All Interns, regardless of position, will have the opportunity to help plan and facilitate the Langdon Summer Drop-In program which provides free outdoor programming for youth ages 10+, under the direction of the Program Facilitator. For the 2020 year, this programming may be provided online, based on the direction of Alberta Health Services.
Youth Interns will also assist the team to design and roll out virtual fundraisers.
Each Youth Intern will be assigned to a Synergy Program Coordinator, who will mentor and train Youth Interns regarding the specific position they are interested in.
All Interns who complete at least 100 hours of volunteer time over the summer will receive a $500.00 bursary.
