Sign Up for CoDevs Young Workers Delegation to Honduras and El Salvador! Nov 30th- Dec 9th, 2011

Are you a younger worker interested learning about global justice and solidarity?

Part of CoDevelopment Canadas mandate and partnership model is making links between Canadians and Latin Americans for mutual learning and solidarity. One of the best ways to deepen this understanding is through delegations: taking Canadians to Latin America to meet the partners they support and learn first-hand about their issues. Canadian participants inevitably return home with a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by their Latin American partners, a greater appreciation of their depth of knowledge and a strengthened commitment to engaging in solidarity here at home.

This type of commitment often extends to the workers involvement in their union in Canada as well, and the connections made during the trip are invaluable once back home.

CoDev has developed an exciting itinerary for a trip to Honduras and El Salvador, including visiting two CoDev partners and a number of other social justice and advocacy groups.

Codev believes this is an important and unique opportunity for young workers to see first-hand the beneficial outcomes of union international solidarity programs; therefore, they are inviting participation of 18 to 30 year-olds.

CoDev needs to confirm the participation of at least eight people by the end of September 2011. CoDev estimates the total cost of the delegation will be roughly $3000 per participant, including all airfare, transportation, shared hotel accommodation and meals for the 10 days.

CoDev invites your help in promoting this opportunity to young union activists.

Deadline, Friday, September 30. For more information you can contact Carol Wood 604.708.1495 or Sarena Talbot 604.708.1495 x 116.

More About CoDev: Founded in 1985 by a group of activists who wanted to go beyond financial aid, CoDev builds partnerships between like-minded organizations in Canada and Latin America to foster learning, social change, and community empowerment.  These partnerships educate Canadians about Latin America and allow them to directly support the region. Such connections build solidarity, mutual understanding and ultimately improve prospects for a fairer global order. Please visit www.codev.org for more information.
