Coast Capital Savings offers internships for Grade 11 and 12 students

Coast Capital Savings is providing high school students from Metro Vancouver, Fraser Valley and Vancouver Island with a one-of-a-kind paid internship opportunity as Youth Get It Interns.

Youth Get It Internships are open to Grade 11 and 12 students.

Students selected for the 20 positions work as paid community ambassadors at various events across B.C. and as member service representatives in Coast Capital Savings branches.

Interns work part time after school or on weekends during the school year and full time in the summer.

“Over its 25-year existence, the Youth Get It Intern program has helped launch the careers of hundreds of young people,” said Maureen Young, the director of community leadership with the credit union.

“While working for the credit union, Youth Get It Interns develop important life and career skills, including leadership, community relations, customer service and financial literacy, all of which will prepare our students for their future endeavours.

Students can apply online at coastcapitalsavings.com, with a cover letter, resume, two written references and a copy of their most recent report card. Applications close April 5. Interested applicants with any questions are asked to contact youthteam@coastcapitalsavings.com.
