INTERNSHIPS

Youth participation is at the core of everything EVE does. Our objectives are to improve our environment by promoting cross-cultural exchange. These exchanges lead to ideas. EVE facilitates the conversion of these ideas into action. This action takes the form of new projects, initiatives and organizations, driven by youth. We primarily focus on youth living in rapidly changing environments.

EVE leverages technology to facilitate the launch of local ideas into global action using the combination of three elements:

  • Environment: One’s surroundings as a starting point for action;

  • Vision: Using modern digital technologies to bring ideas to life;

  • Exchange: Cross-cultural communication as a catalyst for learning.

In 2021 EVE will continue to drive home this mission. Years of youth internships based on principles of shared ideas have primed EVE for playing a major role in connecting our disconnected world, using forward thinking technology once again to lead to cross-cultural exchange. Using a well-honed programming model that applies the capabilities of advanced technologies, we will unleash the spirit of problem-solving youth from across Canada and around the world. If this sounds like the opportunity you have been waiting for, apply for the internship today!

 
 

CURRENT PROJECTS

EVE’s current programs are dedicated to organizing youth exchanges and internships in remote areas vulnerable to threats caused by rapid changes in climate, health and economy. These programs concentrate on Africa and northern Canada, where our partnerships are strongest. We offer internship and participation opportunities for youth around the world.

A major focus of EVE’s programs is the Peace + Freedom Challenge. Peace + Freedom is a collaboration with technology partners, led by Solar Ship.
