International Aboriginal Youth Internship Program – 2 opportunities in Ethiopia

The Canadian Urban Institute is currently applications for the International Aboriginal Youth Internship (IAYI) Program. The program is funded by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA). CUI’s IAYI is designed to provide young Aboriginal women and men with skills-building experience in an international context that will enhance their understanding of international development issues, and enable them to make career choices and gain longer-term employment in the field of their interest. CUI is still accepting applications for two Community Development Intern positions in Ethiopia.

In order to be eligible for an internship, candidates must:

• Hold a secondary school diploma or general equivalency diploma (GED). Youth currently enrolled in a college or CÉGEP program are eligible for an internship as long as they will not graduate before the completion of their internship. Youth currently enrolled in university studies and in possession of a university degree or a college diploma are not eligible.
• Be between the ages of 18 and 35 at the time you sign the contract with CUI
• Be a Canadian or permanent resident of Canada
• Be of Aboriginal affiliation and willing to sign a CIDA self-declaration form.
