Science Horizons Youth Internship Program (Science Horizons)
Science Horizons supports green jobs for youth by providing wage subsidies to eligible employers to hire interns in environmental and clean technology sectors. Interns must be recent college or university graduates in science, technology, engineering or math (STEM).
“This employment has afforded me many opportunities, experiences and responsibilities which have supplemented my skill set.” Hannah: Science Horizons Intern with the Hammond River Angling Association
Since 1997, Science Horizons has supported over 2000 internship opportunities across Canada.
Part of the Government of Canada’s Youth Employment Strategy (YES), Science Horizons helps young people gain the skills, abilities, and work experience they need to find and maintain good employment. YES has a new focus on green jobs for youth, to help young Canadians gain valuable work experience, learn about our natural environment and contribute to economic growth in environmental and clean technology sectors.
