Youth Internship Program
The Cultural Human Resources Council, through its Career Focus Programs, is seeking proposals from cultural institutions and organizations willing to offer dynamic opportunities in the areas of Art Practice and Art Administration to recent post-secondary graduates ages 30 and under. If you have a 4-12 months position in mind and are looking for a positive addition to your team, send us your application. The Youth Internship Program (YIP) offered by the Cultural Human Resources Council, in partnership with Human Resources Development Canada (Career Focus) and the Department of Canadian Heritage (Building Careers in Heritage) has helped match cultural organizations and aspiring cultural workers for eight years. By supporting 4 to 12 months internships, the YIP provides opportunities for non-profit, public and for-profit arts and heritage organizations to hire emerging cultural workers, and for young people to obtain experience and develop new skills. Since the program started, more than 400 organizations and 700 interns have been involved. And around 90% of interns went on to find employment either with the organization where they interned, elsewhere in the sector, or have become self-employed cultural workers.
Becoming a YIP Employer
Are you looking for people who might bring new ideas, skills and enthusiasm into your organization? Do you have a great project idea and someone to lead it, but you lack the capacity to make it happen? You might consider establishing an internship that would match your organization’s needs with a younger person who is interested in a career in the cultural sector.
