CWY is Getting a Fresh New Look!
A brand refresh is underway at CWY! We are transforming our ‘look’, including upgrades to our logo and the design of our external communications tools. Today, you are getting a sneak peek at our new look!
It’s a Wrap! We want to say THANKS!
The 2013-2014 Youth Leaders in Action programming year has come to a close. This year was, once again, filled with tons of cross-cultural learning, team building, community engagement activities and direct support for community development initiatives in our partner countries. On top of all that, it provided many unforgettable experiences for everyone involved.
We want to take this opportunity to say a BIG THANK YOU to all the people that make this program such an unforgettable experience for our Youth Volunteers. Our Host Families, Work Projects, community resource people and many more make this program a ongoing success!
Hey Man, check this out!
CWY is currently looking for young men (aged 18 – 25) for our Youth Leaders in Action program. These men will take part in teams of 12-18 youth from Canada and one of our overseas partner countries, volunteering with community projects in either Tanzania, Benin, Ghana, Nicaragua, Peru, Vietnam, or Indonesia. We are looking for men interested in making a difference!
If you know a young man who would be a great addition to one of our CWY teams, please nominate them by posting their name on the wall of our Facebook event page stating “I nominate (persons name here)” or by inviting them to the event so they can self-nominate!
Our Recruitment Coordinator, Ben Chung, will follow up with all nominees. You can also contact Ben directly by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Meet the team!
