Summer Employment Programs for High School Students
Program 1 – Manitoba Summer Student Recovery Jobs Program
Many employers have listed the opportunities available at www.studentjobsmb.ca
Private sector and non-profit employers can hire as many as five students under the program. Employers are eligible to receive a reimbursement of $7 per hour up to a maximum of $5,000 per student employed between May 1 and September 4, 2020.
The employer must complete an online application prior to hiring additional students.
Green Team Possibilities for Students
Green Team members will work on a variety of community development projects that improve neighbourhoods, promote community involvement and help develop young leaders. Opportunities for employment are now available for students to work at community organizations, municipalities and provincial parks via Green Team projects this summer.
Program 2 – Provincial Park Green Team
Students can apply directly to the provincial park that they would like to work in. Manitoba Conservation has created additional positions for applicants interested in working with wildlife or in forestry, or in assisting at interpretive centres.

Students are asked to please complete the online application before letting the Park Office Contact listed know that they have applied for a position.
Program 3 – Hometown Green Team
If you are connected to a community organization, please encourage the organization to apply/reapply for funding as the students’ wages are 100% refundable.
Many municipalities have already received funding to hire Green Team students this summer. This new program encourages municipalities to apply/reapply for additional Green Team members by refunding 50% of the additional students’ wages. Please connect with your local municipality to see if there is a possibility for employment.
Community organizations and municipalities need to apply for a ‘Second Intake’ application to the Hometown Green Team program by visiting www.manitoba.ca/mr/bldgcomm/greenteam.html .
