Student Research Internship Opportunity with the CRUW Youth Program – due Feb 18

The Culturally-Relevant Urban Wellness (CRUW) youth program is looking for a UBC student to join the program team as an intern for credit on an evidence-based research project. Now in its fourth year, this program brings Indigenous youth in foster care and other diverse youth aged 12-15 to the Indigenous Health Garden at the UBC Farm every second Saturday from March 28 to October 24. Youth grow food, connect with elders, and learn about wellness through a focus on culturally-relevant land-based activities such as medicine making, smoking salmon, drum making, and diversity training.

The CRUW research intern will have the opportunity to take part in program sessions while supporting an evidence-based research study led in collaboration with youth. To apply, please review the posting here.
