youth mobilizing and advocating
about the fellowship
Our Fellowship Program was designed to engage dynamic young people (age 18-29) to advance policy and practice in Canada's workforce development sector by learning how to create systems-level change.
The Canadian Council for Youth Prosperity's Fellowship Program provides promising, bright young thinkers and doers who are mobilizing and advocating at the grassroots level with an opportunity to learn how to create systems-level change. The Fellows will gain a full-time, paid placement for seven months working at the Canadian Council for Youth Prosperity.
Through this program, Fellows would be exposed to policy, research, leadership, academic writing, evaluation, systems thinking, public speaking and more. It will also provide youth with access into the workforce development industry, while at the same time serve as a means of adding more youth perspective to the advocacy work at the Canadian Council for Youth Prosperity.
The mission of this program is to create an enabling environment that fosters and nurtures the next generation of Martin Luther King Jr’s and Nelson Mandela’s who will go on to challenge the status quo, advocate for the voiceless and truly move the needle at the systems-level.
our program goals
The CCYP Fellowship Program has a focused set of goals, to ensure that there are both immediate outcomes as well as long-term outcomes that build the foundation for longer term sector stability.
