Internships

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. Our spring interns are eligible to continue with us as Canada Summer Jobs staff members during the summer!
