We offer learning programs for NGOs, educators, policymakers, and young people interested in taking the steps needed to reframe their current approach to international development. We believe that by challenging implicit paradigms and social structures, this is an offering meant to support those working towards global solidarity that embodies a plurality of world views.
This immersive learning program gave emerging storytellers the opportunity to learn elements of journalism and use these skills to work with journalists in the Kingdom of Eswatini. Four women from the Yukon worked closely with local journalists and non-profit organizations, to tell stories of gender equality. The program was halted due to Covid but, like the rest of the world, we quickly shifted to working on global storytelling initiatives online.
The International Internships for Indigenous Youth program was a 5-year initiative (2018 - 2023) of NCGC in partnership with the Atlantic Council for International Cooperation (ACIC). The program saw close to 60 youth aged 18 - 35 take part in three-month internships in one of five countries: Kenya, Cambodia, Costa Rica, Nepal or Guyana. During covid, youth were able to virtually work with host country organizations. We anticipate this program to be offered again in the near future!
