Canada World Youth is looking for families in Sudbury to host volunteers from Kenya, Tanzania and various parts of Canada.

The volunteers range in age from 18 to 24 years old. They need somewhere to stay for two and a half months, starting at the end of September.

Host families in Sudbury are required to provide food and lodging for two volunteers -- one international and one Canadian.

A weekly allowance of $180 is provided to host families to cover expenses.

The volunteers are participating in the Youth Leaders In Action program. Through that program they spend approximately three months in a Canadian community and three months in an international community.

Shaheen Lotun is the Canada World Youth project supervisor in Sudbury. She joined Markus Schwabe in studio during Morning North: 

Canada World Youth is an international education and development organization. It provides a variety of programs, in over 20 countries around the world, for youth between the ages of 15 and 35 looking to gain leadership experience. 

If you're willing to be a host family this fall you can contact Shaheen at slotun@cwy-jmc.org or (416) 822-2892.
