In partnership with the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), the Victoria International Development Education Association (VIDEA) will be coordinating 10 International Aboriginal Youth Internships in 2012! Following a training and orientation component spent in Victoria, British Columbia, interns will travel to Uganda and Zambia to work with grassroots development organizations.
Interns will receive a modest living allowance including living expenses, food, and accommodation. The interns’ travel, visa, and vaccination costs will be covered. The program start date is January, 2012, and lasts for 6 months.
