Description and results


This project is part of CIDA's International Youth Internship Program (IYIP), funded by the Government of Canada's Youth Employment Strategy (YES). The IYIP contributes to the YES by providing a large spectrum of Canadian graduates with valuable international development work experience abroad.

Results achieved

Results achieved as of March 2011 include the following: Oxfam-Québec’s International Youth Internship Program allowed 20 young Canadians (17 women and 3 men) to acquire international work experience in 20 partner organizations. Each of the 20 partner organizations says it has built its capacity thanks to Oxfam-Québec interns. The 20 interns developed knowledge and skills in organization building, results-based management, equality between women and men, the environment, and public awareness. 95 percent of interns say their career objectives changed or were achieved during their internship overseas.
