Putting it into practice…

Sometimes it’s hard to see how school applies to the real world.

A Rocha gives post-secondary students purpose to their degree by pairing academics with a meaningful work experience. The practicum will help you identify your passions, cultivate your skills in the field, and prepare you for your future as an employee and a person in the world. View available positions below.

“A Rocha isn’t just an environmental organization, it’s holistic in its work.”
“I learned SO MUCH!”
“I love this organization!”

Is this practicum for me?

If your studies require ‘volunteer hours’, ‘experiential learning’, a ‘practicum placement’ or an ‘internship’, the A Rocha Practicum is for you. You bring the academic credit through your institution and A Rocha provides the hands-on experience!

This is an unpaid practicum experience, but if you’re interested in a paid position, check out “Can I spend a summer with A Rocha?” below.
A Rocha is home to a diverse community of scientists, theologians, social workers, philosophers, artists, educators and lifelong learners. Not sure if your program applies? Contact us!
While the position listed are always available, we are happy to accept students from a broad range of disciplines to join A Rocha’s work. If you have a particular project or focus in mind, we are happy to discuss a practicum opportunity with you!
Many students have paired their practicum with a full-time summer position at A Rocha. If you are interested in spending a whole summer with A Rocha and gaining academic credit, check out our employment page in the spring for Summer Staff positions, or send an email to ontario@arocha.ca for more information.
I have more questions…

We’re looking forward to working with you!
