EWC provides a platform where Canadian youth voices are valued and heard, and helps develop and strengthen youth leadership and citizenship in their local communities, in Canada and the world.
Join Canadian youth in a unique life experience!
EWC owes its success to its network of skilled, dedicated and loyal volunteers across Canada. They recruit our young people, spread the word, generate enthusiasm, do presentations, attend conferences, find sponsors, share their expertise as guest speakers and workshop leaders, and so much more. Many have been with EWC for over 30 years!
Live the experience!
Are you a current or former educator who would like to spend two weeks in Ottawa living the EWC experience? Join our Canadian youth in a lasting adventure - and participate in an unmatched professional development opportunity at the same time. Become a teacher-monitor!
Share your expertise!
We are always looking to refine and improve the EWC program. For each and every theme week we strive to ensure our youth participants are exposed to Canada's emerging issues, latest employment trends, rising leaders, fresh perspectives and leading experts. If you, or someone you know, is a dynamic speaker or workshop leader, or can offer a unique and compelling site visit to our youth, contact us today!
