Youth To Sea Summer Leadership Program

YouthToSea: Council - Youth Leaders Community - Ocean Wise - TIGed

Ocean Wise is proud to announce that applications are open for our YouthToSea Summer Leadership Programs in 2020. Previously known as the AquaCamps Work Experience Program, additional staffing and resources have allowed us to elevate our previous program to offer more training, coaching, and professional development opportunities. The new program still meets all the curriculum requirements for the Work Experience Program.

These programs are designed to offer youth (15-18) an opportunity to build their personal leadership, problem-solving and life skills. Youth in the program will participate in our summer AquaCamps programming at the Vancouver Aquarium, shadowing Children & Youth Educators to learn more about working with children in an educational capacity. Participants will expand their social network, increase their marine conservation knowledge, connect with their community and gain employment skills.

Supported by the Government of Canada through the Canada Service Corps initiative, all training, certifications and retreats are fully funded, and there are no costs for participants.

 

Youth who complete the Leadership Program will receive:

·         120+ hours of volunteer service

·         Ocean Wise Animal Handling Certification

·         WHMIS Certification

·         CAN Autism Training

·         Ocean Wise Leadership Program Certificate of Completion

·         Opportunity to join member-only workshops/events at the Vancouver Aquarium

·         Valuable work experience and professional contacts

There is also an opportunity to complete an original ocean conservation service project of their choosing with an Ocean Wise mentor.

More information including how to apply, placement dates/times, and FAQ’s can be found at: education.ocean.org/youthtosea

We are closely following all COVID-19 development and curre​ntly the Summer program will run as planned. However, please be aware there may be a change in dates/opportunities for this program as the provincial and national pandemic response changes. We will keep all applicants updated throughout the process. If we are unable to reopen the Vancouver Aquarium before summer begins, participants will be allowed to withdraw their application to the program, or we can help mentor you through an ocean service project to meet your 120 hours of service.

Please let us know if you have any questions and share this with any of your students who might be interested in this awesome opportunity! General inquiries from students and parents can be sent to youth@ocean.org
