GAP Year for Students
Katimavik gives Canadians between 17 and 21 years old the unique opportunity to take part in an intensive six-month volunteer service program. As a Katimavik volunteer, you will work for not-for-profit organizations that play an important role in the development of Canadian communities.
While on the program, you will live with 10 other youth in one or two different regions of the country and benefit from a stimulating learning process that focuses on developing competencies related to civic engagements, work experience, interpersonal relations, healthy lifestyle, cultural discovery, official languages and environmental stewardship.
Katimavik allows you to develop your competencies, gain valuable work experience and discover new places while making a difference in communities across.
