The Starfish Canada is fueled by an amazing team of change-makers that support our mission of giving young environmentalists a community and platform to create impact. We’re looking for even more people who are passionate about the environment, our planet’s future, and helping one another create an environmental movement that is inclusive, compassionate, and effective.
Work That Matters
Since 2010, we’ve recognized over 200 young folks under 25, connecting them to each other and awarding them for their incredible accomplishments. We’ve run workshops for over 500 students in school rooms across the country, educating them on what it means to work on environmental matters. In 2018, we gave out $50,000 in cash to ensure that these incredible leaders can succeed at what they do best.
You feel comfortable to lead work together, to make mistakes, and to learn from them.
We want you to learn as a part of your experience here (and we are also excited to learn from you). We hope that you feel comfortable asking lots of questions, no matter how small.
You don’t expect you to have all of the answers. We prefer team members that are honest about what they understand. We appreciate team members that are okay to give and receive feedback and are willing to have fun with a wonderful team.
Our work is made possible by amazing people in both volunteer and salaried positions. If you want to become part of an organization supporting Canada’s youth environmentalist movement, check out our current volunteer and career opportunities below.
At The Starfish Canada, we believe that a diverse workforce is the key to success. We encourage applications from all people interested in the role, including youth, LGBTQ2+ and BIPOC peoples, and all genders and sexual orientations.
