It is my pleasure to let you know about the launch of a new internship program for youth aged 15-30! Intern placements will be in eco-focused projects with non-profit organizations across Canada.

The YMCA’s Youth Eco Internship Program is a national program, funded by the Government of Canada’s Economic Action Plan, offering 3 to 12 month funded internship placements. Interns will be placed with non-profit organizations and paid through the YMCA of Greater Toronto. Applications to host interns will be accepted online through the website:

The website will be launched on August 28th with full program information. All host applications should be filled out on-line through the website. Attached to this email are the application documents for your review, to help you prepare for the questions that will be asked on the website’s application. This is for your reference only ahead of the website being launched, and we ask that all organizations submit through the website once it is available later this week.

-       Sample: Host Frequently Asked Questions (English and French)

We encourage you to apply as soon as possible for any positions your organization wishes to host, as we anticipate interest will outweigh the number of internships available. 

If you have any questions you can contact me (information below) or your local regional coordinator for the program:
