The Canadian youth can be someone who is here under a Temporary Resident visa for the duration of the Youth program.
Youth need to be between 18 to 35 years of age at the beginning of the program, January 2023. If you turn 36 later on, then you can still apply.
Yes. As most of the activities will be online, there wouldn’t be an issue.
These will be determined based on a) the availability of program participants which will be gauged through a questionnaire sent out to selected candidates, and b) the opportunity to leverage pre-planned training events that could be of benefit to program participants.
The workshops will be online and most collaboration will occur virtually.
In short, no. The participating SMO will not be fully compensated financially for the time allotted to the YCP program however, a $250 CAD stipend will be offered to the participating organization to help offset the staff time. We encourage you to take a look at our Becoming a Mentor document which briefly outlines the benefits for participating organizations. Alternatively, if you missed our info session, the recording is available on the YCP main page.
Still have questions regarding the value of the program after that? Don’t hesitate to contact Marie-Catherine (firstname.lastname@example.org) who will be more than happy to have a chat and explain any details further.
Selected candidates will be sent a letter of agreement, which will include guidelines on eligible expenses. This will be at the onset of the program, well before any public engagement planning gets underway.
