Holstein Canada Offers International Work Opportunity to Canadian Young Leaders
March 17, 2018

Holstein Canada is proud to offer a new international opportunity for Canadian Young Leaders (Age 19-25) looking to further their international networking skills, dairy industry knowledge and personal skills. The Denmark Farm Work Opportunity gives two Canadian youth the opportunity to travel to Denmark and work on dairy farms.

holstein-canada-logoUnder the Danish and Canadian Holstein Associations’ supervision, two Danish youth and two Canadian youth are offered the possibility to travel and work on a foreign farm. We are currently looking for two passionate Canadian Young Leaders who are interested in participating in this program. The chosen delegates must be prepared to travel to Denmark for a minimum of 3 months, to work on a Danish Dairy Farm. Holstein Canada is not responsible for covering the cost of this trip, but will actively help support the chosen delegates in completing the necessary paperwork and establishing the connection.

It is important to note that in order to obtain a travel visa, there is a Biometric Recording procedure of application that is only available in Ottawa, Toronto or Vancouver. Selected delegates must be able to physically go to one of these offices. These cities are the only ones in Canada with official Danish Visa offices.

Interested in applying to be one of the two delegates who will be travelling to Denmark in 2018? Follow these steps:
Step 1:
Fill out the application form.

Step 2:
Write a 500 word essay on why you would be an ideal candidate for this Denmark Farm Opportunity and what you hope to learn from this trip.

OR

Submit a 1-3 minute video on what you hope to take away from this trip and why you would be a good candidate. Please upload your video to Dropbox, YouTube or Vimeo, and provide the link along with you application.

Submit your application and video or text to [email protected] by Friday, March 24th, 2018.
