Are you ready to see the world and make a difference?
Volunteer overseas with YCI! YCI involves Canadian youth in hands-on projects in developing countries to address local development issues. Our program is ideal if you are:

  • Aged 18 to 30
  • Motivated to make a difference
  • Interested in seeing the world
  • Seeking a team based experience
  • Available for 5 to 10 weeks

YCI is a life changing experience. You will join a team of other Canadian youth and local youth in the country and program of your choice. If you are ready to get started, all you need to do is pick up the phone or send us an email. However it does require deep commitment and engagement on your part. Once you are overseas, the work schedule can be demanding and living conditions are very basic. But the rewards are immense - you will tap into hidden personal resources and push yourself to new heights.
