EQWIP HUBs – An Experience of a Lifetime. Yours.
EQWIP HUBs is an innovative youth livelihood project in 6 countries around the world. Powered by Canada World Youth and Youth Challenge International, EQWIP HUBs seeks to address the underlying issues of youth unemployment, with a specific focus on empowering young women, through its employment and entrepreneurial training.
EQWIP HUBs are dynamic innovation spaces spanning 18 urban centers across Bolivia, Ghana, Indonesia, Peru, Senegal, and Tanzania. Buzzing with collaborative energy, at each EQWIP HUBs we provide a unique platform for young minds to build market-relevant skills, gain access to the mentorship, networks, technology and capital to prepare them for meaningful employment, or to launch a new wave of enterprise.
Qualified and passionate young Canadians work in specialized teams to support each HUB, fuelling cross-cultural innovation, gender-responsive programming and peer-to-peer mentorship. We believe that EQWIP HUBs is the next big innovation in global youth development, and our goal is to change the lives of 100,000 youth by 2020.
This project is now closed to further volunteer applications. To learn more on the impact of this project, please click here.
EQWIP HUBs is generously funded, in part, by the Government of Canada through Global Affairs Canada.
