Description du stage : In Canada
The internship will contribute to ICSC's activities with the PLUS Network member cities and will be responsible for developing the background material to help promote the engagement of youth as part of a sustainable city practice.

The intern will be responsible for doing background research on Tanzania and preparing all the pre-departure logistics. He/she will read Canada's International Policy Statement and familiarize him/herself with the Millennium Development Goals. The intern will research models of resource mobilization, develop participatory planning and decision making procedures, and learn about strategic planning and conducting needs assessments/asset based evaluation. The intern will also participate in training to learn youth engagement strategies.

In Dar es Salaam, the youth intern will work as the Youth Coordinator for the Municipality. Through this role, the youth coordinator will be a resource to youth organizations and facilitate workshops and activities to engage youth in city planning processes. The intern will assist the city in engaging youth to define how they can become more engaged in the community and in sustainability planning. The youth intern will engage youth in community visioning through using a variety of tools and outreach methods. Some of these may include developing and utilizing a set of visioning questions for youth to answer, attending public events, using cartoons, asset mapping and photo-visioning. The intern will also be directly involved in tracking and documenting sustainability demonstration projects in the city and innovative youth projects.

The Dar es Salaam Youth City Council has over 140 youth councilors (aged 15 -24) that represent each of the wards in the 3 municipalities in Dar. The council was struck in 2005 in response to the Millennium Development Goals and the need to have "programmes that integrate youth in decision-making process and forums on youth development policies as cross-cutting issues in local government authorities". The Youth City Council developed a 2 year strategic plan identifying key areas of development and capacity building for youth.

The intern will be engaged in developing workshops for capacity building for this group - based on specific needs identified in their strategic plan - as they lack the resources and capacity to take their ideas to the next step.

The intern will also be responsible for working with the local government with the aim of leveraging youth in government sustainability planning.

The intern will work as an Assistant to the Project Manger for the PLUS Network in Dar es Salaam, and will collaborate with the youth intern working as the One Stop Youth Resource Centre/Safer Cities Youth Coordinator.
