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.

Expected results

The expected intermediate outcomes for this project include: (i) increased awareness among female and male Canadian youth of the equal possibility of working internationally; (ii) enhanced equal employability of female and male International Youth Internship Program (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: (1) 20 internships were coordinated in eleven host countries: South Africa, Bangladesh, India, Cameroon, Saint Vincent and Granada, Ethiopia, Ghana, Tanzania, Botswana, Guyana and Zambia; (2) participating interns increased their understanding of international development; (3) thousands of Canadians (women and men) were reached, thanks to dissemination and awareness efforts; and (4) the capacity of the Coady International Institute's fifteen local partners was enhanced because of the presence of young Canadians in their organizations.
