Wherever we see young people, we also see hope and the desire to change things for the better. For the past four decades, Canada World Youth has worked to channel the energy and optimism of young people towards creating a fairer, more just world. Young people in Canada and the world over have the ability and the determination to transform lives, if only they are given the opportunity. They are models of creativity and global citizenship, and they represent our best hope for a just, harmonious and sustainable world.”
