Cross-Cultural Learning for Youth

The Cross-Cultural Youth Project is an initiative of the Co-operative Enterprise Council of New Brunswick and 40+ community partners across the province, with funding from the federal government’s Canada Service Corps program.

The project’s overall goal is to create a civic service mindset among youth aged 15-30, while nurturing cross cultural awareness and building collaborative relationships, particularly among First Nations, Francophone and Anglophone communities.

Does This Describe You?

  • You are 15 - 30 and want to help address a social, environmental or cultural issue that you feel strongly about.

  • You want to grow as a leader, build personal and professional skills and networks, learn about the diversity of our cultures, and create lifelong connections with peers and change-makers across the region.
