Project Learning Tree (PLT) Canada fosters community interest in the benefits of environmental education and responsible management of Canada’s natural resources. We are committed to using the outdoors to engage youth in learning about the world around them—in urban, suburban, rural, and Indigenous communities, and using trees and forests as windows on the world to inspire action.
We aim to fill over 1,600 jobs through 2018 and 2019 to get Canada’s youth working in the woods. Through this process, funding will be provided to jobs providers that will offer work experience opportunities to youth in the green jobs sector, mainly in natural settings across Canada. Projects can also, where necessary, offer other activities that help youth in skills and work experience to prepare them for, and successfully transition them into the labour market. Funded in part by the Government of Canada’s Youth Employment Strategy.
Project Learning Tree Canada will grow forest and conservation leaders by providing youth leaders with the tools they need to get more youth outdoors. Through professional development for youth leaders, engaging activities, and networking opportunities, we are helping to grow our youth.
