Canada World Youth
designs and delivers international educational programs for youth, aged 17-29, with a focus on volunteer work and community development in a cross-cultural setting. 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. Canada World Youth is about learning by doing. Its non-formal education model involves core elements such as the team approach, the counterpart relationship, host families and communities, and partner organizations.
