It gives young Canadians aged 21-35 the opportunity to live and work in Bolivia, Ghana, Indonesia, Peru, Senegal or Tanzania on 3 to 12 month placements.

Once they arrive, they work side-by-side with EQWIP HUBs staff and partners to offer the specialized training and support needed to help local youth launch a career, or business.  Fueled by collaboration and buoyed by the spirited pulse of youth, each volunteer plays a key role in reaching our goal: propelling 100,000 youth forward by 2020.
