The bilingual manual for permanent employees and field staff details the regulations and guidelines that govern the activities of Katimavik, a volunteer service program in which Canadian youth, ages 17-21, spend nine months in groups of 12, participating in community work projects and special learning activities in the areas of work skills, second language, environmental awareness, billeting, sociocultural explorations, nutrition and well-being, active leisure, and international awareness. The manual is organized into six numbered sections, each with sub-series containing similar or related topics.
