Katimavik’s team wishes to thank the Secrétariat à la Jeunesse of Québec for the funding of $ 700,000 allotted for Eco-Internship and Socio-internship programs, over a two years period.
Since the beginning of the program in 2008, support provided by the Stratégie d’Action Jeunesse contributes to our volunteers’ success. We are continuously working towards the objectives of the Policy and growing the numbers of passionate and ambitious young people who participate in our internships.
This work experience allows them to develop professional skills, as well as master the inner workings of a profession focused on sustainable and environmental practices.
This funding, not only allows Katimavik to maintain the eco-internship program running, but also to further develop our curriculum and offer, as of January 2017, internships in healthy and sustainable living. Volunteers interested in nutrition, healthy lifestyles and physical activity will be able to work in an organization specialized in these issues.
Expressing our deepest gratitude for the financial support, Katimavik’s team continues to work hard to support professional ambitions of young Quebecers!
