Katimavik Youth Services – Volunteering



Katimavik’s National Experience program offers young Canadian citizens, permanent residents, and landed refugees who are between the ages of 17 and 25 the opportunity to gain life skills and work experience while contributing to community development through volunteerism.

Katimavik’s National Experience is a fully-funded and fully-immersive 5.5-month program that brings together 11 young, diverse adults who share and manage a Katimavik house while living in two different communities. All expenses related to participation in the program are covered, including transportation to and from the communities, group activities, housing, and meals. Katimavik is funded by the Government of Canada through its Canada Service Corps initiative.
