The Anglican Church of Canada and the Church of the West Indies are planning joint work tours for this summer that will involve about 70 young people of Canada, Venezuela, British Honduras, Guyana and Jamaica. The two-way, educational and cultural projects seek to promote mutual understanding and friendship.
The international exchange will send 10 Canadians to British Honduras. Six others will go to eastern Venezuela and a similar number to Jamaica.
Youth groups from Jamaica and Guyana will tour Ontario and visit Montreal. On the six- or seven-week tours in July and August the visitors will have as partners an equal number of young people representing the countries acting as hosts.
In 1967, Canadian parties went to Jamaica and Antigua and last year the scheme was extended to include Guyana. So successful were these efforts that the Canadian church decided to move farther afield, and at the same time issued invitations that will bring Guyanese and Jamaicans to Canada for the first time.
The Canadians going to sub-tropical British Honduras are chiefly school teachers. They will engage in an educational-recreational program in schools, most of which are church-operated with governmental assistance.
Two Spanish-speaking young people are included in the group going to El Callao and San Felix where, with their Venezuelan counterparts, among other things, they will renovate a church. In Jamaica the Canadians will work and play with children at Grace Hill Mission, situated in an under-developed area near Montego Bay.
Guyanese and Jamaicans coming to Ontario are expected to number about 20, but this figure awaits confirmation. With Canadian volunteers they will split into groups and carry out novel assignments. Some will learn of inner-city work being done at Sault Ste. Marie and Toronto and attend camps in these areas. Another party is to make a religious census of the Tyendinaga Indian Reserve near Deseronto, while others will clear a site for a chapel at Camp Hyanto near Lyndhurst. The entire party will visit Ottawa and Montreal near the end of their visit.
More than 300 Canadians in the 18-25 age group, from all over Canada, have expressed interest in the Anglican Church's work-tour plans this year and of these 40 are being selected after screening and interviews. The unit cost for each is $500 to be shared by the applicant, his parish and diocese and the national church. Unsuccessful applicants are advised of other volunteer service projects undertaken by a variety of agencies.

Notes
"This summer's Canadian Lutheran Anglican Youth (CLAY) gathering will be packed to the rafters, an organizer says -- partly because more Anglicans will be attending than ever before. 'What we've seen at this point in time is that the Anglican commitment has increased, and we rejoice in that because it's really enacting what we believe around full communion', says CLAY 2016 chair, the Rev. David Burrows. Some 950 people -- about 850 youth participants and around 100 volunteers -- are expected to attend CLAY 2016, organizers say. Since this is the event's maximum capacity, no new registrations will be accepted. Registration for this year's CLAY is 55 % higher than in 2014 and 33 % higher than CLAY 2012, organizers say. The event, which happens every two years, began in the 1960s as an Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC) youth gathering but was opened to Anglicans in 2010. Since then, only roughly a tenth of attendants have been Anglican -- with the exception of this year, Burrows says. For CLAY 2016, slated for August 17-21 on the campus of the University of Prince Edward Island, almost one quarter -- 200 of 850 -- of the youth participants will be Anglican". "The theme of CLAY this year is 'Not for Sale', which, according to the gathering's website (claygathering.ca), will be explored in three ways: salvation not for sale; human beings not for sale; and creation not for sale".

That, since the future of the Church depends upon the continued enlistment of its young people, in its worship, service and fellowship, we recommend that definite efforts be made to develop an inclusive, Dominion-wide organization for them and that the General Synod express its general approval of the A.Y.P.A. as the body, now possessing a Dominion-wide standing, through which such an inclusive organization can best be worked out and developed.

Christian fellowship will take on a new meaning for a party of young Canadian Anglicans undertaking a work-tour this summer that will involve a 3,000-mile flight to South America, followed by a 250-mile, 15-hour trek by steamer and motor-truck into the Guyana hinterland.
Together with a number of other young people going to Jamaica, they make up a group of 33 participating in a scheme which links two sister churches of the Anglican communion - the Church of the West Indies and the Anglican Church of Canada.
In promoting the work-tours, the churches aim at stimulating a sense of vocation among West Indians and Canadians who work, learn and live together for a six-week period from mid-July until the end of August. Last year, Canadian groups went to Jamaica and Antigua.
In Guyana, the 10 Canadians will be jointed by a similar number of young Guyanese. Nearly three weeks will be spent at Issano, a mining town in the interior, where they will build a schoolhouse. Later they will live in Guyanese homes in various parishes and conduct vacation schools.
Jamaican church leaders plan a 10-day work project in the Tower Hill area near Kingston in which 18 Canadians and their West Indian counterparts will work together. For the rest of the tour the group will also participate in vacation school activities.
Nearly 400 inquiries about the Canadian church's 1968 project were received and 70 were selected for interviews and screening. From these, 28 were approved of whom four boys and six girls were chosen to go to Guyana, while eight boys and ten girls make up the Jamaica group. Five leaders, two for Guyana and three for Jamaica, will be in charge of the party.
The work groups range in age from 18 to 24, all having expressed willingness to do physical work and to assist in educational and recreational programs. The cost for each is $500 to be shared by the applicant, his parish, his diocese and the national church.
Before leaving for the south on July 12 the party will attend a three-day briefing course at Canterbury Hills, the Anglican Conference Centre near Hamilton, Ontario.
Group members and leaders going to Guyana:
Chesley Skinner, St. John's, Nfld.; Richard Westall, Colborne, Ont.; Miss Jane Reymes, Cobourg, Ont.; Miss Marie Crosson, Downsview, Ont.; Miss Linda Parsons, Burlington, Ont.; Miss Kathleen Standish, Port Colborne, Ont.; Jack Brown, London, Ont.; Peter Dalziel, London, Ont.; Miss Susan Latimer, London, Ont.; Miss Mary Rossiter, Sault Ste.
