Become a Summer Missionary at Jesters Theatre in Mission BC!
Our 2016 Team! We miss you!
Am I eligible? I have been registered as a full-time student in the previous academic year and intend to return to school on a full-time basis in the next academic year (at least 16 credit hours)
- I am a Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or person to whom refugee protection has been conferred under the Immigration and Refugee Protection ActFootnote2; and

Our 2015 Team! We miss you too!
How do I apply? This year our plan is to hire 6 students with a love for youth and theatre. Jesters Theatre is a non-profit Christian organization with the aim to develop youth in all areas of their lives. Successful applicants will be paid according to their skills and experience.
- Please submit your a resume to: email@example.com.
- Please ask at least 3 references to fill out an online reference form .
When do I find out if I got the job? The nature of the Canada Jobs Program is such that we are given notice of our acceptance by late April or early May. While this is inconvenient, we have found that we have been able to successfully obtain our higher paying grants predictably for many years and under our new government, last year we were awarded with the Student Staff grants for the first time. (see position descriptions below)
What will I be doing? The jobs listed below are aimed towards the preparation and fulfillment of summer theatre programs in Mission. We will hold one Leadership Program, two Theatre Camps, two Musical Theatre Camps, Fundraisers (including a Bottle Drive and a Krispy Kreme event), a Writing Club and a Fall Theatre Kick Off Event. The photo here is of a small group at our Kids Musical Theatre Camp. Together our staff will use their collective gifts and abilities to create a successful summer program through administration, training, teaching, leadership and mentoring. Committees will be established within our staff, volunteers and student leaders focusing on team development and creativity. Lastly, as a missionary position, salary not covered by the government (that portion above minimum wage) and personal expenses and training must be raised by each student. This is done through a support letter which is sent to family and friends who will not only support you financially, but pray for you as you begin this important work.
