Hint: After a little break, this organization's website is back and ready to share all that this member has to offer. This member recently celebrated their 40th anniversary. WHAT AN IMPACT IT HAS HAD.
The Basics: "Founded in 1971 by the late Honourable Jacques Hébert (1923-2007), Canada World Youth (CWY) is a world leader in developing international educational programs for young people aged 15 to 35. A non-profit organisation, CWY is dedicated to enriching the lives of young people that have a desire to become informed and active global citizens. CWY programs are designed to help youth experience the world for themselves, learn about other cultures and diverse Canadian communities while developing leadership and communication skills."
Canada World Youth’s mission is to increase the ability of people, and especially youth, to participate actively in the development of just, harmonious, and sustainable societies.
Canada World Youth envisions a world of active, engaged global citizens who share responsibility for the well-being of all people and the planet.
WHY WE LOVE CWY:
- 40 years of a commitment to education
- One of many testimonials that show the impact CWY has on individuals who participate in the programs
- A program speaks for itself if alumni come back to get involved
- what better way to learn more than to apply yourself! Recruitment for the 2012-2013 season begins
- an inspiring founder
