The International Youth Fellowship Program builds the skills of young Canadians and supports the work of AKFC’s partner organizations overseas.

Program Streams

Participants can apply for one of three streams that best match their backgrounds and interests:

  • International Development Management (IDM) Fellows benefit from placements in a variety of organizations, working in fields such as health, education, rural development, and civil society strengthening. Placements include positions in research, project management, communications, and monitoring and evaluation.

  • Young Professionals in Media (YPM) Fellows work as journalists for Nation Media Group, a leading media outlet in East Africa. With opportunities to report in print, broadcast, and digital media, Fellows gain the skills to work effectively in today’s global media environment.
