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: The Atlantic Council for International Cooperation coordinated 15 internships in six countries. The interns assisted local partners by transferring computer literacy skills to local staff and by improving the abilities of local staff in teaching and facilitating workshops, specifically in Ghana, Tanzania and Honduras. The interns acquired new skills and abilities that increase their employability such as: increased knowledge of how gender equality and other issues affect policies and practices in a development context and increased writing for the web skills.
