Mutually-beneficial and respectful partnerships have been a central element of CWY’s programs since the organization was founded in 1971. Our partnership model ensures that youth and local communities are the direct beneficiaries of our work, both in Canada and internationally. Other international youth programs have been modeled after the CWY programming and partnership model.


We have a great diversity of partners, including non-profit entities, educational institutions, government bodies and grassroots community organizations, which not only demonstrates our capacity to respond to the needs and interests of a multitude of stakeholders, but also shows our ongoing interest in improving our youth leadership programs and community-driven development projects.
