CPrize Volunteer and Internship Program
Building Project office and comfortable residence to double its size by raising it to put a full floor under it. Our educational facilities are aimed at profitable and practical outcomes as well as providing educational and recreational uses. The objective of our taking interns is to enable 3rd world students to obtain training they can use in their nation, they can use or teach to help overcome poverty.
Future greenhouses on our 5.6 hectare campus will have up to 25% of their floor space dedicated to student or intern instigated and approved trials, crops and propagation while a spectrum of 'bread and butter' crops will be developed and aimed at providing organic, aquaponic or hydroponically grown crops free of chemical based pesticides to the public. (Growers in our province supply only 7% of the produce consumed in it).
Our volunteer internships provide flexible experiential training in a wide range of disciplines:
1. diagnostic and remedial health plus related neuroscientific therapies and technologies, (not offered until the 4th quarter 2011) and is expected to include hyperbaric oxygen therapies at a future date,
2. green technologies, including aquaponics, hydroponics, aquaculture, agriculture, nursery stock, reforestation, seed saving and storage, and propagation of medicinal and/or endangered species (plants and animals) and when we can, animal husbandry aimed at (injured or mildly diseased; ie. non-contagious) wild animals,
3. appropriate (low tech) technologies aimed at 3rd world use, water, sanitation, power, health and food related, including preservation. (Automotive, bicycle, electrical, plumbing, welding, and related mechanical skills are needed)
4. modern technologies, including solar and wind power installation and use, methane generation, solar to geothermal heating/cooling, developing new technologies for transportation, saving lives, and other dream inspired developments,
5. printing and literacy programs (we have a printing press but no pressman to set it up and run it)
6. radio program skills (posted to the internet) and documentary production
7. website and related programming and computer or internet research skills
Each is combined with training in logistics and performance management systems. Some programs are self-guided and mentored. Some programs have limited enrollment and/or educational or skill-related prerequisites. Some programs require that you have building and construction related skills. All research papers must be duplicated at a minimum and at least one copy left in our library. The objective of our educational program is to enhance your functionality and nurture a deeper connection between our lives, health, the earth, and the food that we eat, calling on the analogical Guidance of our dreams (eyelid movies while we sleep) and visions (visioning, meditation etc) for the practical or creative suggestions they provide as much as possible. The content of your dreams is the primary source of relevance relational to your internship and pivotal to what you will learn and do. Without them you are just another face in a crowd and not nearly as useful to us or the world.
With your application as a student submission of a dream journal of at least 50 dreams or one month of journal whichever is greater is required. An intern is required to provide one full page of written dreams (700 or more words) prior to arrival and preferably a journal spanning years. Volunteers are not required to do this, however it is strongly recommended otherwise you may not be able to participate as meaningfully in the most valuable parts of our program, aimed at preemptively save lives from future natural disasters. That part of our program requires some refinements, however it must not be relegated to the efforts of one person, or it will never provide the necessary preemptive information or life-saving benefits.
While our program covers a wide range of green and modern technologies it also includes recycling technologies (each depending upon the season and available materials), emphasis focuses on CPrize's mandate of developing and modeling new techniques, methodologies and new technologies for manufacturing new products or building from recycled materials, and for proliferating agricultural products, or endangered species and tree transplants at low cost.
Our operating language is English. French is spoken by many people in our small community. (ADSL and wireless internet access is available at our office at 5 megabit, and 3 cellular service areas cover the area and we have a VOIP line making free calls to all of North America possible). Expect part of your time will involve interaction in or near local communities and that will entail tact and other social skills, social activism or participation with non-profits.
Interns must commit to a 90-180 day stay (renewable) and work 30-40 hrs/week (plus learn and/or research 10-20hrs/week plus pursue our real-life altruistic life-saving objectives). Interns pay their own (air)fare to and from Regina, Saskatchewan (or may drive to Willow Bunch SK if it is feasible). Accommodation and food are provided, or bring your own accommodation (motorhome, camper/trailer, tent, or stay at our summer-crowded hotel at $65/night). A stipend of $5/day is provided to interns while in active training or participation in any development area listed above or our unique and preemptive disaster-related life-saving program is paid every second Friday. Certificates are presented for technologies and skills mastered while in the program, or days of relevant experience listed while working as a volunteer. Fundraising opportunities exist in BC and SK for some qualified outgoing interns or for telemarketing able people who want to earn their airfare and related costs prior to their arrival.
Volunteers (not interns) must commit to a minimum of one week and contribute a minimum of $100 Cdn (per week) on arrival to grocery and accommodation costs. Please Note: both volunteers and interns must apply at least 1 week prior to arriving to ensure a place to stay when you arrive, preferably 30 days ahead or more to be sure, otherwise you will be bunked in our developing college, a former school.
Special diets or ethnic foods can only be accommodated at times when you are doing the cooking and it must be edible to all who will normally eat at the residence. We also strongly recommend you share at least one meal a day within others here so you can discuss relevant plans, training and objectives with others socially.
The Practically Dreaming Course is free to interns after 10 weeks of internship (or refunded at that point if it has already been paid for and taken.) Interns who show some level of proficiency with dreams or persistent interest will be encouraged to help present the course and further their understanding of the analogical and metaphorical process which has allowed so many famous people in history to excel in their chosen field. Our main heroes are Einstein and Edison, many others are recognized.
Internships available: (intakes focus on Sept 15, Dec 15, Mar 15, Jun 15)
If on reading the objectives of our college you see potential for an internship, please write us with your suggestion and proposal. We try to accommodate anyone aiming to increase their education within the framework of our ability.
Applications and journals can be sent to volunteer@ cprize.org (best) or fill out this form. Do not use texting jargon or abbreviations. Expect we will request that you coordinate a face to face video interview via skype from your computer or an internet cafe to Call2us. The interview may last from 30 minutes to one hour. DO NOT CALL US UNTIL YOU HAVE HAD AN INTERVIEW (we don't have the resources to handle that). Please indicate whether you have any health issues we should know about or ones making a difference to your ability to function or meaningfully participate within a group. Provide as well as your level of education, whether you are still a student, and your educational objective (if any) and marital status. We will consider only mature and active individuals during construction.
For internship converting to students in higher levels of training, the candidate must show a proficiency with interpreting dreams and/or visions for life-saving, creative or health related outcomes. If you participate in our program as an intern or student you will find you are part of a very significant global project with ramifications which may shock and/or amaze you. No exclusive focus to one area is required. The life-saving part will be an abiding and always underlying priority to our overall objectives. Interns may want to be conversantly familiar with recognized sources of prophecies, relevant inspired works, and show a reasonable ability to avoid harmful or non-constructive opinion expressing disbelief in the face of inspired answers. Constructive interpretations and inspired, reasoned directions are supported and encouraged.
Training of others, particularly internationally, must accompany intern learning focussed on transportable skills (a valid passport is required and a letter from your local or national police confirming an absence of criminal activity). Certification to teach our main programs takes an indeterminate time from 2 to five years of cumulative participation. At least one publishable work of 200-500 pages must be developed from dreams and original research of the student or intern and submitted for collaboration and review 6 months prior to completion of the certification process aimed at training others. Certification for teaching requires at least proficiency in English and a second language if from nations where English is not spoken by everyone.
Please NOTE. Tobacco often contains tobacco mosaic virus (TMV). It causes many problems we do not wish to have. Smoking is not permitted anywhere on the campus or in any Foundation building. People wishing to be involved in greenhouse or health related functions cannot use tobacco for the entire time they are in residence, including on field trips to other facilities, greenhouses or around any crops potentially negatively affected by TMV.
