YOUTH IN ACTION
Since 1971, more than 22,000 youth have participated in Canada World Youth programs. As a team, youth live and work in communities in Canada and overseas, learning about local and international development and gaining essential job skills for the future.
CANADA AND THE WORLD
Working in partnership with local organizations, the majority of Canada World Youth programs have a phase in Canada and a phase in one of more than 30 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, and Central and Eastern Europe.
HANDS ON LEARNING
Canada World Youth is about learning by doing. Its non-formal educational model involves core elements such as the team approach, the counterpart relationship, host families and communities, and partner organizations.
More than 30 years of experience: Canada World Youth was founded by retired senator Jacques Hébert with the mission of increasing young people's ability to participate actively in the development of just, harmonious and sustainable societies.
