Waterlution is hiring a Bilingual Youth Engagement Coordinator

In practice, Waterlution provides immersive 21st-century leadership training, coaching, mentorship and social project-building/business creation opportunities customized for youth & young water and environmental professionals.
Waterlution’s Youth Programs are designed to engage students and young professionals (ages 19-29) as Youth Advisory Board volunteers, they receive training to lead and educate schools across Canada (students ages 7-18). In the 2020 school year, a new project will begin, focusing on training and engaging youth in water-storytelling activities and contests. If restrictions ease, workshops will be delivered in classrooms later into the school year.
Over the past four years, four cohorts of trained Youth Advisory Board volunteers have worked with the Youth Programs Project Lead to develop and deliver two grade-school education programs, the Great Waters Challenge (participants explored their community through a gamified water-history learning challenge) and the Great Canoe Journey (participants explore local waters through traditional indigenous canoes and indigenous water knowledge in their region). Combined, the projects engaged over 6000 youths across Canada. The projects also included the production of two children’s books and an educational calendar.
