International Youth Internships: NOW RECRUITING!

Since 2002, the Atlantic Council for International Cooperation (ACIC) has offered 65 internships in 16 countries through the International Youth Internships Program (DFATD). These internships provide youth (age 19-30) with international development experience, skills, and knowledge to help better prepare them for future employment, while advancing Canadian development objectives.

ACIC works with its Canadian member organizations and their international partners to offer interns valuable experience both overseas as well as in Canada. Interns will work in the areas of securing the future of children and youth, stimulating sustainable economic growth, and increasing food security. Through this experience, interns develop skills and experience that will assist them in securing employment as well as enabling them to make connections and develop relationships with many Canadian development practitioners.

Internships are eight months in duration, with six months spent in host partner organization countries: Bhutan, Bolivia, Ghana, Gambia, Haiti, Jamaica, Kenya, South Africa and Uganda. Interns also work in Canada for up to two months with an ACIC member organization both prior to their departure overseas and upon their return.

A modest living allowance is provided, as well as funding to assist with a variety of costs related to the internship, including: travel to overseas posting, medical insurance, visas, training and job search support. Interns cover the cost of travel to and from the location in Atlantic Canada at the beginning and end of their contract.
