Local Conservation Efforts Get a Boost - Quinte Conservation Hires 17 Summer Students

Quinte Conservation is thrilled to have received enough funding to hire 17 summer students.  Communications manager, Jennifer May-Anderson says, “We are pleased to have received funding to hire summer students. This will allow Quinte Conservation to thrive this summer. Having more people on our team will allow us to better achieve our goals of creating a healthy sustainable watershed in which nature and people can live in harmony.”

May-Anderson explains, “Not only are these summer students helping the organization, but they also have the opportunity to develop their skill sets. This will help them become leaders in our communities. Students are able to apply to jobs that fit their specific education programs. This means that summer students gain valuable mentorship and hands on experience from professionals in their field. Some of these jobs include, GIS technician assistant, communications assistant, summer education staff, campground attendant, corporate services assistant and more.”

Employment grants from Canada Summer Jobs, Summer Employment Opportunities, and Youth Job Link assist Quinte Conservation in offering these opportunities.

May-Anderson adds, “Summer student job postings can be found on our website in December. We encourage everyone who is interested to apply, as they could have the opportunity to help us achieve our initiatives while having the opportunity to explore their career interests.”
