SOYL: Sustainable Opportunities for Youth Leadership is looking for interns for its summer 2015 session! Over the course of the internship, you will build, manage, and advocate for school gardens. Through garden-based learning you will gain knowledge about the environment, community engagement, as well as gain a greater understanding of food production, preparation, and preservation.

SOYL partners with schools across Vancouver to offer students this great opportunity for personal growth and to be leaders in their community.


The internship program is open to all Vancouver youth entering grades 8 through 12 in the 2015-2016 school year. Open to students from across Vancouver. Private School students are welcome to apply.

The 2015 Summer Internship runs from July 6th until August 14th. Interns work 5.5 hours each day, three days a week. Locations vary between the different participating schools.
