How to entice more young people into the tourism industry on the Burin Peninsula


There are opportunities for young people to get into the tourism industry on the Burin Peninsula; however, they are not motivated to do so. Often, tourism organizations who receive funding to hire university and college students only get that funding for 7 weeks of work. These organizations would like to have the students work in July and August during the peak season, but by that time most students already have jobs because they finish school in the spring. What are the options for getting more students and youth involved in the tourism industry?
