Manitoba Parks Green Team

Manitoba Parks recognizes the importance of young people finding summer employment to gain valuable work experience and to help them save for their future schooling and other opportunities.  The Green Team is all about giving young Manitobans the opportunity to work outdoors in our wonderful provincial parks and contributing in a meaningful way to conserving the natural world we all get to enjoy.

Who Is Eligible?
The Green Team program is intended for Manitoba youth, aged 16 to 29 to work in provincial parks throughout Manitoba.

What Kind of Work is it?
Jobs vary from park maintenance to resource management to tourism. Youth may work on general park maintenance (such as painting, grass trimming, cleaning campsites and beaches), park interpretive programming, environmental projects or general office assistance.

What Skills Are Needed?
We look for youth that show a strong initiative and an eagerness to work and learn. The ability to work independently and in a team setting, and having good organizational skills is essential.  Youth that have some previous experience at home, school or previous employment/volunteer work is a strong asset. 

Youth looking for jobs with park maintenance should have some previous experience with yard work, painting and janitorial tasks, and be comfortable with push mowers, trimmers, and using hand tools.

Youth looking for jobs with Park Interpreters should be comfortable with public speaking, interacting with people of all ages, and show a strong interest or have some background knowledge in local plants, wildlife, culture/history and park features.

How Long Will the Work Last?
Green Team students are hired for 8 weeks (July & August) or 14 weeks (May to August) in two categories: Basic Skills Worker or Lead Hand/Semi-Skilled Worker. Wages, weeks and number of positions available in each park are dependent upon final program approval.
