2017 Northern Youth Mentoring Field Program
July 4 July 14, 2017

Schools on Board is an outreach program of ArcticNet, based out of The Clayton H. Riddell Faculty of Environment, Earth and Resources at the University of Manitoba (Winnipeg, Canada). It was developed to bridge Arctic research with science education in high schools across Canada; to increase awareness of issues related to climate change in Canada, and to educate young Canadians about the challenges and career opportunities of Arctic research. The main thrust of the program is the Field Program "on board" the CCGS Amundsen.

This year our program will be designed specifically for northern youth (19-29) who are interested in gaining experience in conducting Arctic marine research on a state-of-the-art coast guard ship CCGS Amundsen.

Applications Due: May 1, 2017For more information: See Current Trip

  • introduction to cutting-edge technology and Arctic marine research on board a working Coast Guard icebreaker
  • mentoring opportunities with scientists in labs and on deck
  • introduction to the Canadian Coast Guard Service

  • life on board a research icebreaker
