Since its founding in 1971, Canada World Youth (CWY) has offered international volunteer programs to 38,000 youth who wanted to become informed and active global citizens. Through their participation in community-driven development projects, CWY youth volunteers from Canada and abroad develop leadership skills that allow them to become agents of change.
Canada World Youth envisions a world of active, engaged global citizens who share responsibility for the well-being of all people and the planet.
Canada World Youth’s mission is to increase the ability of people, and especially youth, to participate actively in the development of just, harmonious, and sustainable societies.
The circle in the CWY logo symbolizes the world. The two converging arrows represent communication, an exchange between cultures. The overall logo also illustrates CWY’s primary target audience: youth.
Integrity in all our relationships, partnerships and business dealings, through honest, transparent and equitable interactions.
Empowerment in providing all our constituents with the space and the ability to be innovative and facilitate the implementation of new initiatives that will promote our mission and vision.
Respect in ensuring equity for all peoples of diverse backgrounds, realities and cultures; in learning to understand and respect one another; and in understanding that all of humanity is interdependent and depends on the natural environment.
Accountability in ensuring responsible actions and behaviours, while being true to our values in all our relationships, policies and decisions.
