CWY believes in youth-led development and innovation, whereby young people identify or define problem, explore potential solutions and take responsibility for developing and implementing a solution. Young people have the potential to mobilize and transform the world and to advance the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). CWseeks to create opportunities for young innovators to lead the change.

We are looking for young people to submit an idea that falls within one of the CWY pillars and contributes to the advancement of one or more of the CWY affiliated SDGs.

Selected projects will receive expert guidance on developing an idea into a full operating project including but not limited to, project development, sourcing collaborative partnerships, budgeting, identifying funding opportunities and perhaps the most important, delivery

Accepting submissions from August 12 (International Youth Day), 2020 to September 30, 2020.

Successful candidates will be notified by October 31st, 2020 



Preference will be given to programs that align with Canada’s Feminist International Assistance Policy.
