Description du stage : In Canada

Coady's Youth in Partnership program has two Canada-based components: a four week pre- departure orientation (including workshops designed to prepare the associate for living and working overseas) and an educational program (for which a certificate is awarded).

Pre-Departure Orientation: The educational component, working as joint participants with development professionals from across the global south, allow the youth associate to become more familiar with the philosophy of development, the principles of adult education and community-driven development. It also enables the associates to learn directly from the experience of Southern development leaders. The workshops guide the associates in their preparation for the overseas component of the program. Associates learn to compile research related their placement countries and organizations as well as the specific issues that are central to their overseas job description. The workshops include counselling and training related to gender, environment and HIV/AIDS as well as practical approaches to living and working in a Southern country environment. The responsibilities of the associates during this component are: to live cooperatively together in a residential training setting; to attend and participate fully all educational and workshop sessions; to research and document their placement country and organization and build a portfolio related to the overseas job description; to participate in one-on-one counselling sessions with the Youth Programs Coordinator and to develop links with a Canada-based mentor who will be available by email and telephone to provide advice related to the overseas work.

Re-entry Program. Following the overseas component of the internship, the associate is required to participate in a two-week re-entry program in Canada. The re-entry program assists the youth associate to reflect on their experience, to de-brief and to share their experiences with other Canadians. The program also includes an opportunity to develop career and job search skills. Associates are required to prepare substantive reports of their achievements relative to their job descriptions, prepare a press release, engage in job search activities, to participate and present their experience in at least one public forum, and to participate fully and openly in debriefing exercises with their colleagues as well as on a one-on-one basis with the Youth Programs Coordinator. They are also required to prepare written evaluations of each component of the internship program, to participate in group evaluation discussions and to provide a critical assessment of their individual placement.
