📝 About the You(th) Explore program 📝

You(th) Explore is a 40h-long learning program that allows students to explore who they are and what impact they want to have in the world. It offers synchronous and asynchronous learning and combines social and emotional learning with entrepreneurship and technology, to help build a well-rounded and conscientious change-maker.

🎯 About your responsibilities 🎯


  • Support UpstartED's Chief Technology Officer with any technical changes to be made on our Google Classroom platform. 
  • Answer technical questions submitted by students and teachers. 
  • Build a ticketing process whereby the technology team can categorize, track and answer tech requests. 
  • Test education platform prior to launch.


🥇 About you 🥇


  • Minimum 1 years of experience working as a Technical Assistant or any other relevant position
  • Strong communication competencies, including demonstrated ability in communicating tech related aspects to non-technical people 
  • Positive attitude, always seeing “the glass half full” :-)
  • A reliable individual with proven organizational competencies, including demonstrated ability with managing tickets on time
  • A collaborator and a team player, comfortable working autonomously within a small team and being a self-driven learner
  • Experience with Google Drive tools, especially with Google Classroom
  • Bilingual French / English would be an asset
  • You are Canadian Citizen or Permanent Resident and you are between 15 to 30 years old (Canada Summer Job Program requirements)

❗To be eligible to the Canada Summer Job program, you must:

  • be between 15 and 30 years of age at the start of the employment*;
  • be a Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or person to whom refugee protection has been conferred under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act for the duration of the employment**; and,
  • have a valid Social Insurance Number at the start of employment and be legally entitled to work in Canada in accordance with relevant provincial or territorial legislation and regulations

*The youth must be 15 years of age at the beginning of the employment period. The youth may be more than 30 years of age at the end of the employment period as long as the youth was 30 at the beginning of the employment period.

**International students are not eligible participants. International students include anyone who is temporarily in Canada for studies and who is not a Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or person who has been granted refugee status in Canada. Youth awaiting a refugee status ruling, as well as those who hold a temporary visitor visa, youth visa or work visa are ineligible. As the objective of the Canada Summer Jobs program is to support youth entering the Canadian labour market, the temporary nature of an international student’s time in Canada does not allow for a long-term connection to the labour market.
