Each year, Falls Brook Centre offers young Canadians an opportunity to gain practical experience in the fields of organic agriculture, environmental education, land restoration, renewable energy and community development through the Canadian International Development Agency's (CIDA) International Youth Internship Program (IYIP). The goal of this project is to give young Canadians practical work experience and to develop skills in the fields of international relations and sustainable development both in the context of Atlantic Canada and in Latin America.
Falls Brook Centre internships are an integral part of equipping young professionals of today with practical knowledge and skills to work at a landscape level with local communities in transition. As an organization we seek to inform our policy discussions and educational outreach with hands-on skill-building. A morning might be spent turning compost and then suiting up to assist with a public forum on adaptation to climate change. A 10-day analog forestry workshop might be arranged where you are soaking in and learning from some of the leading restoration biologists without a weekend break. The internship will be what you are willing to put into it. The value is really in how you can apply yourself. Most placements are in rural areas faced with challenging situations. You should expect to spend a very full eight months requiring time, energy, productivity and a perspective willing to be challenged and engaged.
PREREQUISITES FOR ALL INTERNSHIPS:
Be aged 30 or under;
Be Canadian citizens or landed immigrants able to work in Canada;
Be currently under or unemployed;
Have not previously worked outside Canada in a paid, career-related position;
Be a graduate of a college or university; and
