Urban Outreach Team Member at Parks Canada in Vancouver, BC
I have been working for the Parks Canada Agency this summer as a Public Outreach and Education Team member, focused on educating members on the public on different topics such as species at risk, wildlife safety, and connectivity with nature. I have gained many skills throughout this position such as dialogic interpretation, leadership and organization. I have also developed my strengths in problem solving, communication and teamwork during this position because of the nature of working in a small team and talking to members of the public. Co-op has allowed me to expand my professionalism and networking and having the experience provided throughout the work terms will help me with career path later down the line.
