This project is part of Global Affairs Canada’s International Aboriginal Youth Internships (IAYI) initiative. The internships focus on increasing the awareness, engagement, and participation of Indigenous youth in international development, while providing them with opportunities to expand their employment skills or further their education. L’AMIE, in consortium with the First Nations Human Resources Development Commission of Quebec, sends 50 Indigenous youth to Bolivia as part of the Enhancing Indigenous Cultures project. The interns help enhance Bolivian Indigenous culture through three components focused on children and youth: their education (formal and informal); their health (physical and psychological); and their safety (child and Indigenous rights).

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased participation of Indigenous youth interns (women and men) in their communities, in the labour market or in the higher education sector in Canada and abroad, including in the field of international development; and (2) increased engagement of Indigenous youth interns (women and men) as global citizens who support international development efforts in Canada and abroad, including within their communities.

Results achieved 

Results achieved as of the end of the project (March 2023) include: (1) the participation of 14 young Aboriginal Canadians in international development internships in Bolivia, including four virtual internships; and (2) the participation of 18 young Aboriginal Canadian interns in pre-departure training, international development field activities and other activities. All this, to help them enter the Canadian job market or continue their studies.
