|Mandate:||Youth Challenge International is a youth-focused NGO that equips developing country and Canadian youth with the skills to contribute positively to their communities and the communities they visit. We believe that truly effective aid must have an explicit youth focus – economic and social development outcomes cannot be improved without engaging in youth specific programming. As well, we believe that campaigns to engage the Canadian public in development will be far stronger with focused youth engagement. YCI is one of the premier youth development agencies in Canada with effective and innovative youth development programming, partnerships in developing countries and a strong program of engagement for Canadian youth.|
