Here’s a bit of what you can expect when you join us as a Tour Intern
Meet New People
Yup, you’re going to meet lots and lots of new people.
We take inspiring youth very seriously—but have a lot of fun in the process.
You’ll log quite a few kilometres while making a difference and seeing what this beautiful country has to offer.
You’ll bring a few skills with you on tour, but you’ll leave with a ton more.
Life is about people. If you feel the same way and are looking for a meaningful way to help others see their own potential, consider touring with us.
By now, you probably have a few questions. Here are some we get a lot.
You’ll train with us in Hamilton Ontario for a couple of weeks and then start visiting schools with your team. Throughout the semester’s tour, you and your team will mostly be travelling in one of our organization’s tour buses (which carries team members, their personal belongings, and presentation gear.)
While in Hamilton Ontario, you’ll stay in one of our dorm-style apartments. We have one for guys and one for girls, and within their shared living rooms and kitchens, there are great opportunities for team building, reading, watching movies, cooking together, chilling out, and basically just having a great time. And yes, wifi is available. When tour dates take you across the country, you’ll be staying with a number of families and friends of Live Different who, with great generosity, give our teams a place to stay, food to eat, great conversation, and a chance to relax in between school visits.
In general, our tour runs in conjunction with the semester calendar for most schools. For the fall, this has you joining us in mid-August to begin training, hitting the road around Labour Day, and finishing tour by mid-December. For the spring, you’ll join us in mid-January for training, hit the road by early February, and be wrapping up tour by the end of May.
All Expenses are paid for the duration of the placement including food, accommodation and travel (a total value of approximately $3000 per semester).
Additionally we would be willing to provide $1200–$3400 volunteer stipend (depending on applicable experience) to each intern which will be released in increments over the duration of the semester.
