Every year, the National Trust for Canada helps dozens of heritage organizations hire Canadian youth through the Young Canada Works (YCW) program.
The YCW program provides funds for employers to hire students or recent graduates for a diverse range of jobs. In particular, the National Trust encourages applications to create positions in heritage planning, Main Street programs, interpretation, heritage outreach, Doors Open, tourism, and education.
YCW is a collaboration between the National Trust for Canada and the Department of Canadian Heritage. YCW also aids employers in creating and funding jobs and connecting them with a pool of eligible students from around the country who are looking for work.
Despite Covid-19, last year the National Trust was able to create over 150 jobs and provide more funding to heritage organizations than ever before.
If you are a heritage organization and think you could benefit from a student or recent graduate working at your organization than you should apply for this program. No project is too small and with Covid-19 there is greater work flexibility (including remote work) and the potential for more funding than in previous years.
