The YCW program is a Youth Employment Strategy initiative aimed to provide summer employment and internships for youth across Canada. The Canadian Library Association, in partnership with the Department of Canadian Heritage, delivers both the YCW in Heritage Organizations program and the Building Careers in Heritage internships.

The YCW in Heritage Organization program offers contribution amounts to organizations for the creation of summer jobs. These summer jobs can be 6 to 16 weeks long and are intended to provide the student will full-time work.

The objectives of the YCW in Heritage Organizations program are to:

  • enable participants to earn money that will help them finance their education;
  • help participants acquire employability and career-related skills;
  • help young Canadians explore career choices and participate in the heritage sector; and
  • help to strengthen Canada’s cultural and heritage sectors.

The YCW in Building Careers in Heritage program offers contribution amounts to organizations for the creation of internships for 4 to 12 months long.

The objectives of the YCW in Building Careers in Heritage internships are to:
