The BounceBack team is currently accepting applications for Provincial Youth Advisors/Peer Educators for our 2019/2020 term. This is a joint position. 
 
We are looking for 15 young people aged 14–24 to join this year's Provincial Youth Advisory/ Peer Educator team for 8 months (Nov 2019-July 2020). Members will have the opportunity to contribute to program curriculum, program updates, and outreach and promotion. All meetings take place online. Access to internet/computer/phone is needed.
