Each year, CPPCL hires a team of youth/students (aged 15-30) for fall and winter contracts to support projects on equity, diversity, decolonization, and inclusion related to all aspects of parks and protected areas science, research, and management in Canada. These youth are hired through CPPCL’s Youth Knowledge Gatherer Program.
CPPCL values the fresh and diverse perspectives youth bring to the table. In addition to providing new insights and learning opportunities for current park leaders, youth are our future leaders – their voices need to be heard to succeed in building an equitable and sustainable future for parks and protected areas.
