Initiation to international cooperation
through an internship

BanniereQSF 602x226

Each year, the Uniterra program takes part in the Quebec Without Borders initiative and offers young Quebecers from ages 18 to 35 the chance to take part in international solidarity initiation internships in a French-speaking African country or in Latin America.

The international development directorate of Quebec’s department of international relations handles coordination of Quebec Without Borders in collaboration with the Association québécoise des organismes de coopération internationale (AQOCI). Quebec Without Borders helps create solid partnerships and strengthens lasting links between North and South.
