Are you a young Canadian looking for adventure? Do you want to create the ultimate "Canadian" bucket list? Do you want to share your stories about your summer vacation, road trips or encounters and use them to inspire youth to seek out awesome experiences in their own back yard? If so, Parks Canada has the job for you!

In 2011 Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced the Parks Canada Youth Ambassador Program as Canada's official gift to commemorate the first visit to Canada by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. As Parks Canada Youth Ambassadors, two young Canadians will be hired to inspire youth to get off track and discover and share all the awesome things that they can experience in Canada.

We are currently seeking our next two Youth Ambassadors to embark on an once-in-a-lifetime summer journey. Have fun and create incredible memories and gain valuable skills through thrilling adventures in some of Canada's most spectacular places. Your mission: find creative new ways to get Canadian youth interested in and experiencing Canada's rich and diverse natural and cultural heritage.

The adventures won't stop with the end of summer! In September, as part-time employees (approximately one day per week to the end of March), you will share your discoveries and experiences at organized events and activities to introduce and motivate your generation to discover Parks Canada.

Check out the adventures of the 2012-2013 Parks Canada Youth Ambassador on Facebook and Twitter!

Interested in becoming the next Parks Canada Youth Ambassador?

We are collaborating with Global Vision, a respected non-profit organization that has been developing young Canadians into global leaders since 1991, to recruit the next Parks Canada Youth Ambassadors.

If you are interested in applying for the Parks Canada Youth Ambassador position, you must participate in one of the upcoming Round Tables (St. John's, Ottawa, Calgary and Montreal). You can also apply if you have participated in one of the regional Leader Centre program held since February 2012. There is a modest registration fee to participate in the Round Tables. The fee covers the cost of transportation and/or accommodation and meals to the sessions closest to your province of residence.
