Mission Statement

At a global level YES Canada's vision is to build a Global Alliance for Youth Employment. The purpose of such an Alliance is to build a community of practice where large and small organizations can work together on international development issues. YES Canada is forming the structures that will fulfill the goals of the Youth Employment Summit (YES) Campaign. Our mandate is to bring the Alexandria Summit a Framework for Action to life worldwide. Global linkages between Canada and South Africa provide a road map to creating productive and sustainable livelihoods for youth. Over the coming months and years, our mission is to ensure that our two primary goals are met: 1. Advocacy - Create an awareness of global issues in Canada and encourage Canadian youth to get involved and make a difference in their communities and in the world; 2. Capacity Building - have Canadians work collaboratively with youth from around the world to share resources and work towards common goals.

Description

YES Canada offers Canadian youth the chance to meet and work with their counterparts overseas. While learning about unique cultures, building international connections and helping make a difference in local communities, young people can also work with the Network as a Community Coordinator acting as the network contact for a particular area.
