Youth Fusion is based on an innovative idea that was never tested before in Quebec and Canada: hiring university students as Project Coordinators in elementary and high schools to implement and support creative and inspiring projects that actively engage youth in their academic success.
That each youth achieves educational success by discovering, cultivating, and valuing his abilities with the support of the school ecosystem and the community.
Contributing to school perseverance, employability, and civic engagement of youth by implementing innovative experiential learning projects that create ongoing links between school environment and the community.
PROJECT COORDINATOR SCIENCE OF THE LAND
Youth Fusion offers a wide variety of programs. This job offer is specific to the Science of the Land program. This program aims to empower students to pursue their curiosity for land-based activities and sciences. The in-class and afterschool activities combine hands-on scientific activities with traditional and cultural activities relating to the territory. The collaboration with community members and elders is essential in this project, as they have a deep understanding of the land and living beings, and the importance of honouring this relationship. With their support and through the organization of multiple outings, the youth can develop further knowledge of the land and their environment.
