Katimavik is Canada's leading youth service organization, and the National Experience offers a life-changing opportunity for youth, ages 17-25, to explore Canada, make new friendships, gain valuable work experience, and contribute to positive change through volunteerism and active Indigenous reconciliation. For over 40 years, Katimavik has brought young adults together to learn, to exchange culture and language, and to help build stronger communities across Canada. Over 5 months, participant-volunteers live in a "Katimavik house" with 10 other youth in 2 host communities. Through the development of life skills, experiential learning, and civic engagement, they gain competencies to become engaged leaders.
