Intern for Terry Beech, Member of Parliament

Summer Leadership Program

Students would get a hands on experience on what it is like to work in a constituency office. They will have multiple opportunities to connect with constituents about issues that matter to them. This type of experience will not only enhance your student’s social skills but it could also inspire them to make a change in their community. Students will also be able to use their leadership skills and help plan various events, which will take place during the summer.

Our office views this work experience opportunity as a way for the students to build their resume and network.
