All candidates must be under 30, underemployed and meet all other eligibility criteria (for more information please visit our website at www.canadem.ca). Of the over 140 JPCs placed by CANADEM over the past six years, most found relevant employment after completing their internships.

On-Going Support CANADEM JPCs are given assignments and responsibilities commensurate with their academic, working and volunteer experiences. Contracts include: * An in-Canada pre-departure orientation (early summer); * A six months overseas posting; * On-going follow-up while on placement (including job leads); and * A final in-Canada debriefing session. Throughout the placements, CANADEM's JPC Program Coordinator remains in contact with the JPCs and, as the placements draw to a close, provides assistance in reworking and updating resumes. Funding CANADEM's JPC program is undertaken within the Government of Canada's Youth Employment Strategy (YES) with contributions from DFAIT and CIDA (funding for 2003-04 is pending final approval – check website for updates).
