Empowering Youth Employment: Clean Tech Internships

Program Overview

The Career Launcher Clean Tech Internship Program is an innovative initiative designed to bridge the gap between young talent and employers within the clean technology sector. As the world increasingly focuses on sustainable and eco-friendly solutions, this program offers a promising avenue for youth to kick-start their careers in a domain that promises growth and innovation. 

The program supports the cleantech industry’s expansion and contributes significantly to environmental sustainability and economic development.

Three core objectives of the funding program are:

1. Encourage Youth Employment in Clean Tech:  By providing significant financial incentives to employers, the program aims to boost the hiring of young professionals in clean technology roles, thereby fostering a generation of skilled workers dedicated to environmental sustainability.

2. Reduce Financial Barriers for Employers: With a grant covering 80% of wages up to $25,000, plus a $5,000 training subsidy, the program makes it economically viable for employers to invest in new talent, encouraging them to offer more internships.

3. Promote Practical Training and Development: The additional training subsidy aims to enhance the interns’ skills, ensuring they receive practical, hands-on training that prepares them for the clean tech industry’s demands.

Key Dates 

Employers interested in participating must note that applications opened on April 2, 2024. Internships will commence between April 1 and September 1, 2024, and conclude by February 28, 2025. 

This timeframe provides a structured period for interns to gain valuable experience and contribute meaningfully to their host organisations. The Clean Tech Internship Program represents a win-win scenario for employers and young professionals. It’s an opportunity for employers to tap into a pool of enthusiastic, skilled talent ready to contribute to their projects with fresh ideas and energy.

For interns, it’s a golden chance to gain invaluable industry experience, network with professionals, and potentially secure a foothold in the rapidly growing clean tech sector. As the program unfolds, it promises to be a key driver in preparing a skilled workforce to tackle tomorrow’s environmental challenges.
