Even though the summer is quickly coming to an end, we want you to know that your Green Jobs experience doesn’t have to. PLT Canada is committed to supporting you throughout your journey from your green job to your green career. 

Project Learning Tree Canada (PLT Canada) is offering a full scholarship for four youth from our Green Jobs network to attend the Canadian Parks Conference October 7 to 10 in Quebec City. All expenses, including travel, accommodation, meals, and registration, will be covered. If you see yourself as part of our Youth Champions Delegation, apply today. The deadline is midnight (eastern time) August 29.

As a Green Jobs alumni and member of the PLT Canada Green Jobs Network, you will have access to an evolving array of programs and resources designed to flexibly support you throughout your green education and career journey. Sponsoring students is just one example of how we plan to continue to support Canada’s youth.
