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.

Expected results 

The expected intermediate outcomes for this project include: i) increased awareness to female and male Canadian youth of the equal possibility of working internationally; ii) enhanced equal employability of female and male IYIP interns in Canada and in the field of international development; iii) improved capacity of female and male IYIP interns to contribute to international development in a gender sensitive way.

Results achieved 

Results achieved as of the end of the project (March 2014) include: coordinating eighteen internships in three countries. The students assisted local partners with activities to strengthen their management capacity (in Nicaragua), community organization for advocacy (in Nicaragua and Bolivia), and sustainable planning (in Haiti). The interns acquired new skills and abilities that will increase their employability such as: the production of a business plan, management and accounting, animation techniques, the development of a curriculum, and knowledge transfer techniques.
