About CanGap Impact Fellowship 2023

You chose a gap year so you could DO cool stuff and build your resume or portfolio, but how the heck do you do that with no $$$ to get started? Or maybe you’ve just finished your bachelor’s degree and have no idea what the heck you are supposed to do next with no real-world experience on your resume.

The CanGap Impact Fellowship is a 3-month skill development and project management program helping young Canadians (ages 17 – 25) get real experience in turning ideas into real (and impactful!) projects.

Program Details

The Impact Fellowship will run two cohorts for the 2023/24 school year: October to December and January to March. To learn which cohort is right for you, click here.

So, what kind of projects can you build during your fellowship?

  • Host a fundraiser for a local women’s shelter or organization you support

  • Direct an art show that shares powerful pieces by youth in your community

  • Host a cultural dinner and evening for your neighbors and friends (celebrate black excellence, Indigenous culture, and more!)

  • Lead awareness campaigns on the dangers of fast fashion or mass tourism

  • Organize a community-wide park or beach clean-up

As long as your project highlights a community service element, social or environmental justice topic, the sky’s the limit!

Month One

Kick-off your project with a 4-day bootcamp (October 3 – 6 OR January 9 – 12 from 10AM to 12PM EST) where we’ll dive into your interests, your project goals, and everything you need to know to lead a kick-butt, meaningful project.

After completing your Bootcamp, you’ll receive 50% of your $1000 project micro-grant and the remaining 50% after submitting your project budget for review.

Month Two

Every week following bootcamp, you’ll meet with your Program Lead and cohort to dive into skill building workshops that level-up your abilities, your confidence, and move you closer to your project goals. 

You’ll also meet weekly with your Project Coach to keep you on track throughout the 3 months as you work to plan, implement, and report on your service project.

Month Three

By the end of month three, you will have implemented your project and be responsible for evaluating and reporting on the success of it. Don’t worry if not everything goes the way you imagined – that’s where the greatest learning comes in!
