Help CWY continue making a difference one youth at a time


Because of you Canada World Youth was able to change the life of over 25,000 youth this past year.

Changing the lives of young people is now more important than ever. With four in 10 people – 42% of the global population being under the age of 25, this demographic is in desperate need of our support.

That’s why Canada World Youth is committed to continue investing in young people to pursue purposeful actions and overcome challenging experiences creating a longer lasting impact for themselves and society through our experiential learning programs.

“My internship with Canada World Youth has provided me with experiences that allowed me to build a unique skillset. I now have a second family in Peru and I plan to visit them in the future. I’m grateful for the opportunity to have lived in Peru for four months doing the work that I did, and it has changed me as a person.”

- Chelsea Currie, CWY Pathways to Indigenous Leadership Program (IAYI) intern 2018

These programs would not exist without your support.

As a member of our CWY family, you know first-hand the impact our programs can have.

On behalf of Chelsea and all the other youth you have helped us support through one of our unique CWY experiences, thank you.

This holiday season, please make a special year-end gift to Canada World Youth so we can continue to make a difference one youth at a time.

Wishing you and your family all the very best for 2019.
