International Youth Fellowship Program in Canada

The International Youth Fellowship Program is a unique opportunity for young leaders in Canada to bring a global dimension to their careers. Through an intensive training seminar and an overseas placement, Fellows get hands-on experience in international development while supporting strong, effective, local institutions.

Each Fellow spends eight months in Africa or Asia working with agencies and partners of the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN), one of the world’s largest and most respected international development organizations.

Before Fellows depart for their overseas placement, they attend a three-week seminar in Ottawa, which provides a thorough grounding in the skills and knowledge required to contribute effectively to their host organizations. Workshops are facilitated by leading international development professionals, based in Canada and overseas.

To become an International Youth Fellow, applicants must:

  • Be a citizen or permanent resident of Canada
  • Be 30 years of age or younger at the time of the application deadline
  • Be able to demonstrate qualities and characteristics of global citizens
  • Hold at minimum an undergraduate university degree
