Since 2014, CAPI has hosted over two thousand undergraduate students from China for one- and two-week experential learning programs focusing on west coast and Indigenous history and culture, environmental studies, sociology, and more.

CAPI's International Youth Leadership Program (IYLP) provides Chinese undergraduate students invaluable experiential learning on the beautiful west coast of Canada.

In operation since 2014, this multi–day educational leadership program delivers a global learning experience to students through a combination of on-campus academic lectures and off-campus field trips covering topics such as local west coast and Indigenous history; gender, sexuality and identity studies; Canadian and First Nations art; and comparative sociology.

The Program runs during the months of March through June and September through to December, with an average class size of 45 students. With a focus on optimizing learning outcomes, students are taught by the University of Victoria faculty, CAPI Associates and PhD candidates from the faculties of Law, Humanities and Social Sciences. Field trips are designed to parallel lectures and include visits to the Royal BC Museum, the BC Legislature, Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, Craigdarroch Castle, Goldstream Provincial Park, Swan Lake Nature House and a visit to SṈIDȻEȽ, a First Nations territory.

The IYLP is a collaboration between CAPI and Beifang International Education Group.
