We’re looking for dynamic and responsible youth leaders from across Newfoundland and Labrador to join our new national EcoMentors Youth Activator Network!
Earth Day Canada’s EcoMentors program provides youth (ages 15 to 24) across Canada with training so that they can encourage other youth and younger kids to adopt positive environmental activities while building leadership and employability skills.
The EcoMentors Youth Activator Network is made up of youth representatives (from across the country starting in the east) who will deliver regional training to new EcoMentors and act as advisors to the program.
Earth Day Canada will be accepting applications from youth (18 to 24 years) to represent Labrador, Nova Central, Western and Eastern Newfoundland in the Youth Activator Network. Successful applicants will receive an honorarium for their work. Visitwww.earthday.ca for application details.
