Five objects our youth fellows won’t leave behind

June 8, 2016 - This summer, 12 accomplished young Canadians will take flight around the globe. They will spend eight months putting their energy and skills to use in the developing world, working in fields from microfinance to education to journalism.

Since 1989, almost 500 young Canadian professionals have participated in AKFC’s International Youth Fellowship. With the support of Global Affairs Canada, the program places young Canadians with organizations in the developing world.

Visit our photo gallery to discover which cherished items our newest cohort of fellows will bring along for the journey, and why.
