The RCA hires a group of university/college students each year to carry out important education and technical projects from May through August. The students travel throughout Alberta delivering these projects, while gaining valuable experience that assists them in their education and career pursuits.

RCA Ambassador Program Running Again in 2016

Does your municipality or organization need help with specific tasks or projects this summer? Look no further – the RCA’s Summer Ambassadors are just what you need!

Examples of projects with which the Ambassadors are ideal to assist include public information events, surveys, waste audits and other field research. Project duration can vary from one day to 4 months. RCA Ambassadors bring an environmental, marketing, or technical background, combined with a keen interest in applying their educational experience, as well as the support of the RCA administration and Board. Terms and hourly rates can be negotiated to fit the scope of your project.

If you have a project that may benefit from the involvement of the RCA’s Summer Ambassadors, email or give Leanne a call at 403.463.4463 to discuss your requirements.

Students, please download the detailed job description and application instructions (2016). Submit your electronic application (cover letter and resume) by March 12, 2016 to
