Internships give you the opportunity to develop your skills, learn how Fresh Roots’s unique model works, and make a real contribution to our community. As a Fresh Roots intern, you may be able to receive credit through the University of British Columbia or Kwantlen Polytechnic University. Each internship has its own delicious flavor. Most of our internships combine a portion of time for school credit and a Canada Summer Jobs position when possible. Check out the intern postings for the exact structure.
