[Civics Works Application]
Civics Works, a pilot project of the Canadian Council of Muslim Women (CCMW) with support from Canadian Heritage's Multiculturalism Program, is designed to enhance the civic literacy and civic engagement skills of ethnoculturally diverse youth.

We are currently inviting applications from youth aged 18-24 of diverse ethnocultural backgrounds interested in civic engagement (esp. youth interested in careers in civic engagement work). Applicants must live in Montreal, Ottawa, or Toronto and be available to participate in this project between October 2016 and March 2017.

Youth will participate in a "Civics Lab" (two master class workshops including four modules on civic literacy, media literacy, financial literacy, and tech literacy). Youth will also participate in a tri-city Civic Strategy Summit in February 2017 between teams of 10 youth from Montreal, Ottawa, and Toronto who will collaborate together to solve problems encountered in social activism work.

Benefits of participating in this pilot project include:
1. Improving your understanding about how your communities work and how to work for change in them.
2. Learning new community organizing skills and sharpening existing ones through volunteer work with a local civic institution.
3. Building new working relationships with others dedicated to enhancing the quality of life in your local community.
4. Successful completion of the project will qualify you for a work reference from the CCMW.

To apply to participate in the project, please fill out the form below before Friday February 3rd, 2017.

Questions can be directed to CCMW's Project Coordinator for Civics Works at youth@ccmw.com. While we appreciate the interest of all applicants, only those selected for an interview will be contacted.
