Person Looking At Board

Youth Board

The Aquatic Biosphere is passionate about education and supporting the development of our youth, students and recent graduates. The Project works with a number of community based internship and engaged learning experiences to offer opportunities of skills development, leadership and work experiences.

Youth at the Table
By Volunteer Alberta

 We are a partner in the Youth at the Table program, a chance for youth to participate as an active Board Member of a non-profit. Similar to the UofA's program, this one is open to any youth interested in gaining experience in Board work.


Volunteer Alberta and the Aquarium Society of Alberta have partnered together since 2019. The program brings non-profits and youth together to give interested young leaders the experience of sitting on an actual Board of Directors, to learn the roles and responsibilities and to complete a leadership project by the end of the program. The participants are highly motivated and the Society has been pleased to include them at the Board level and mentor them through a variety of projects, according to interests and skills.

Non-Profit Board Internship

The Non-Profit Board Student Internship (NPBI) program is one of the internship and work opportunities in the University of Alberta. The Aquatic Biosphere Project has mentored students in this program and coached them to actively participate in non-profit Boards for the school term. Participants are able to see what it's like to be on a Board and will provide a presentation at year end.
