Students invited to work with government, businesses to address challenges

The new provincial Case Team Program is an opportunity for post-secondary students to work with government, businesses and non-profit organizations to help address challenges they are currently facing. 

The provincial government will be hiring 25 post-secondary students for the summer who want to help solve real issues involving, but not limited to, marketing, human resources, operations, or strategy. Both students and organizations interested in being part of the Case Team Program can now apply online

“I couldn’t imagine a better time than right now, with what we’re dealing with in COVID-19, to have a group of talented post-secondary students help find solutions and solve problems as we look to renew PEI, together. Our post-secondary students have so much to offer, including a unique perspective and the ability to adapt and be resourceful. They are innovative thinkers and we have so much to gain by having them work with us as we seek new ways to move forward.” 

- Premier Dennis King

Students will work in case teams of five to review issues or concerns brought forward by government departments and agencies, businesses and non-profit organizations. Students will work with their client to analyze and research the issues of concern and develop best practices and evidence-based solutions to the problem. They will present their findings to their clients in a professional report and oral presentation.

Students will primarily work virtually and practice public health measures such as physical distancing as required. Students will also participate in professional development activities that will help further their educational and career goals.

The student summer employment with the Case Team Program will run from June 8 until August 28, 2020. Online applications for both students and organizations will be accepted until Wednesday, May 27, 2020.
