Aboriginal Youth Internship Program

The BC Public Service Agency, in partnership with the Ministry of Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation, Aboriginal Leadership, and Aboriginal youth organizations developed the Aboriginal Youth Internship Program as part of government's commitment to the New Relationship with Aboriginal people. The program is designed to support Aboriginal youth in developing their leadership skills and encourage them to consider the BC Public Service or Aboriginal organizations as a place to pursue a rewarding career.

The Aboriginal Youth Internship Program is a 12-month paid internship for Aboriginal youth residing in B.C., age 29 and under. Interns are placed in provincial government ministries for nine months and then in Aboriginal organizations for the last three months of their internship. Interns are supported by the Aboriginal Youth Internship Program staff (program lead, program coordinator, and program administrator), and supervisors and mentors in government ministries and Aboriginal organizations.
