Youth In Action:
Since 1971, more than 21,000 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 20 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, and Central and Eastern Europe.
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 Hebert with the mission of increasing young people’s ability to participate actively in the development of just, harmonious and sustainable societies.
