Ship for World Youth - Japan

Experience Japan (14 days) with 160 international youth leaders by participating in this unique online and in-person cultural exchange program

The Ship for World Youth will bring together 160 youth leaders from around the globe for an online and 2-week in-person cultural immersion program in Japan. Through the generosity of the Government of Japan, 9 Canadian youth (8 Participating Youth and 1 National Leader) will be selected to participate.

The Ship for World Youth program serves as an opportunity for Participating Youth from various backgrounds to engage with different cultures and develop their communication, leadership, and management skills through discussions, cultural exchanges, and workshops. In addition, the program aims to establish a strong human network across national borders.

Since the emergence of COVID-19 in 2020, the face-to-face exchange program onboard a cruise ship has been cancelled and the program has been modified to a new hybrid format.
