In the Youth Leaders in Action program, a team of nine young Canadians and nine young people from a partner country spend six months together doing volunteer work.
Three months in a Canadian community and three months in a community in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, or Latin America. Each young Canadian is matched with a participant from the exchange country for the entire period. This is a unique opportunity to become involved as a volunteer, discover other cultures, learn another language, and become a true citizen of the world!
Applications for this year’s Youth Peer Leadership program are now open for youth ages 19-25! 6 communities from the Qikiqtani region have been selected: Successful applicants will travel to Iqaluit for November 29- December 1, 2023. You can find more details about this program as well as the application forms at the bottom of this.
