The position is a full time CANADA SUMMER JOBS (CSJ) contract. To be eligible you must be between 18 and 30 years old. Eligible applicants also need to have been a full time student during the past academic year, and be returning to school full time in the fall.

Project 10 welcomes the contributions that individuals from marginalized communities bring to our organization, and invites native people, people of colour, women, lesbians, bisexuals, transgender and transsexual people, people with disabilities, HIV positive people and working class people to apply.
