Apply to be part of PSAC’s young workers delegation to Central America

Dear Sisters & Brothers,

PSAC’s Social Justice Fund is working with CoDevelopment Canada (CoDev) to offer a group of young activists from our union an important and unique opportunity to see first hand the beneficial outcomes of union international solidarity and social justice programs.

Part of CoDev’s mandate and partnership model is making links between Canadians and Latin Americans for mutual learning and solidarity. One of the best ways to experience this mandate and deepen our partnership and 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.

One young member aged 18 and 30 will be chosen to represent the Prairie Region in this delegation and will travel to Honduras and El Salvador from November 30 to December 9, 2011 to learn about union international solidarity programs. All expenses, including travel, shared accommodation, meals and lost wages will be covered by the PSAC Social Justice Fund.

If you are interested in being considered for this opportunity, please complete the application form (linked below). Applications must be received by the office of the REVP by November 2, 2011.

In Solidarity,

Robyn Benson
Regional Executive Vice-President
Public Service Alliance of Canada, Prairies
