Our Peer Mentor volunteer positions are open to EYA program alumni, or youth ages of 18 – 25 with equivalent experience in gardening and facilitation. We encourage applications from past EYA participants and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, people of colour) youth. To apply, complete the online form below, or via this link.

COVID-19 UPDATE: EYA is planning for in-person summer programs with some changes to keep you and your family safe, including small group sizes, outdoor activities only, 2-metre physical distancing, no sharing of tools or gloves, frequent hand-washing, and safely-prepared pre-packaged lunches. We’re carefully monitoring updates from health authorities – if it isn’t possible to run in-person programs, we will run virtual programs instead.

If you have any questions relating to our Peer Mentorship offerings, contact us at or 604-689-4446 .
