Katimavik Youth Services



Katimavik’s two programs offer young Canadian citizens, permanent residents, and landed refugees the opportunity to gain life skills and work experience while contributing to community development.

Katimavik’s National Experience is a fully funded 5.5-month program that brings together 11 young adults (aged 17-25) who share and manage a house in two different Canadian communities. Participants volunteer 32 hours per week, participate in Truth learning and active Reconciliation, and develop skills related to civic engagement, employability, and self-determination.

FuturePerfect participants (aged 18 – 30) develop employability skills through three months of paid work in the community.  Supported by a job developer, participants gain valuable employability skills through workshops and training. Housing and transportation to/from the program are covered.
