Northern Youth Abroad is made possible through the countless contributions of those who play key roles in each element of our organization and its programs. Here are some of the ways you can get involved.
NYA has a small team, normally of five full-time staff, that works from an Ottawa-based office. Additional staff are hired during the summer, as well as occasionally during other times with higher than normal work volumes. The work environment is unique, fast-paced, friendly and focused on the success of the Participants that we serve. Wondering what it’s like to work with us? Get more info right here.
