Internships Opportunities with SUCO

SUCO is launching a new internship program in sustainable development. The International Youth Internship Program (IYIP) is open to Canadian graduates of post-secondary institutions, between 19 and 30 years of age. It is part of the Government of Canada’s Youth Employment Strategy and aims to provide young Canadians with the tools they need to further their careers. The internships consist of a two week training session followed by a six month period spent in a developing country working with a local partner on important development issues within the community. SUCO is offering 18 internships which are integrated within our existing projects in agriculture and include mandates such as capacity building for agricultural producers and support of organic farmers. Mandates are available in both French and Spanish. The application deadline is April 1st 2018, with departures planned for mid-June. For more information, see the press release [in French only]:
