The Sustainable Opportunities for Youth Leadership (SOYL) Internship trains Vancouver youth to be leaders in their schools and communities through hands-on service learning in their school gardens and with partner organizations in our local food system. Youth gain skills in garden planning, construction, maintenance, and sales. They experience the rewards of challenging, meaningful work, meet other youth from around Vancouver with shared values and interests, gain support from community mentors to continue growing as leaders, and have fun! SOYL values diversity in all forms (gender, ethnicity, ability, sexual-orientation, and socio-economic) and is committed to creating a diverse, inclusive community.
