Authentic Youth Engagement

How do we engage young people in meaningful ways by creating authentic decision-making positions that foster a positive youth-adult partnership? By creating a mentor and knowledge-transfer relationship youth not only gain insight into organizational governance but adults gain insight into opportunities and barriers facing youth culture.

Civic Engagement

Civic engagement is an important part of community social development and a fulfilling experience that helps us feel more connected to our communities. There are many different ways to be involved with civic engagement in your community through both political and non-political processes we can create different kinds of leaders by combining our knowledge and skills with others to make our communities stronger.

Learn about your strengths, talents and development new ones
Learn how to build self-esteem and their unique voice
Learn about their local community and communities across Canada
Learn how to foster appreciation of Canada’s diversity
