Potential new IICRD Project

As a next step for IICRD YouLEAD training program, IICRD has applied for the new GAC sponsored INTERNATIONAL ABORIGINAL YOUTH INTERNSHIPS (IAYI) Initiative.

If successful, IICRD's new IICRD Internship initiative would involve sending Canadian Indigenous young adult Interns to 4 or more countries, for 6 months of valuable work experience, empowerment, awareness-raising, and international Indigenous connections.

The IICRD's previous Internship program (Young Professionals International Placements) was highly successful from 1998 to 2005, supporting more than 50 Interns in 10 countries.  For more information, see the project photo (from Mexico), and the Internship Review document below, or contact for more details. 

Imagine a world where we build on the core strengths of children, their families, and communities, to create dignity, belonging, and justice for all.
