I would like to thank you for being part of the international CWY community of people who promote, support and uphold the importance of youth leadership. It is through your ongoing dedication and support to Canada World Youth that we are able to continue to offer youth, in countries around the world, opportunities to grow, lead and become agents of change in their communities. Your belief in our organization has helped us to thrive and grow over the last 40 years, and will continue to help us in the years to come as we diversify, innovate and renew our programs to support new generations of youth leaders around the world.

From the Canada World Youth global family to yours, we wish you all a very happy holidays and happy new year!
