On March 18th, we began welcoming our brand new batch of interns for the spring season! We are happily bringing in four highly skilled interns who will work a variety of jobs at Social Harvest for the next three months. These interns will try and build off of what the previous batch accomplished. Thanks to the Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa, we are able to secure funding help the community by giving youth aged 18-29 valuable work experience so they can jumpstart their careers.
We would like to say "So long partner" to Erik, Yashna and Allan and thank them for their time and dedication to our team. They came in at a difficult time during Covid-19 and performed extremely well. We wish them the very best and hope that the skills they learned here will help them in their career!
Let us introduce you to our brand new interns!
