The Young Leadership Israel Advocacy program (YLIA) is an exciting program that guides a select group of young Jewish professionals from across Canada into the federal political process. The YLIA program provides participants with the knowledge, skills and political connections to make getting involved exciting and fun, while simultaneously making it possible for them to make a difference in their respective Jewish communities/Federations, and advancing the pro-Israel agenda.
Throughout the program, participants will have the opportunity to meet senior Canadian parliamentarians and government officials during a conference in Ottawa, listen to various experts on monthly conference calls and travel to Israel on a highly specialized mission with Canadian parliamentarians. By the end of the program, participants will be well equipped to become active players in Canadian politics and well-prepared to make a difference for themselves, their communities, and their local Federations.
YLIA is open to any Jewish young adult between the ages of 23-45 who is either a Canadian citizen or a landed immigrant. Participants must have an interest in becoming involved in the Canadian political arena and their local Federations. Participants must reside in Canada throughout the program with the intention of staying in Canada afterwards. Undergraduate students are not eligible unless they are over 25 years of age.
