The new Youth Leadership Initiative is a leadership and mentorship program designed to follow up on the objectives identified at the 2019 Voice of Youth Conference.
The program’s main goal is to address the two principal areas of concern identified by youth at the conference – mentorship and employment. The program will therefore consist of trainings relating to leadership, mentorship and employment, team building activities and volunteer opportunities/site visits throughout the year. Youth will be able to build their resumes and gain volunteer experience, employment skills, and leadership abilities while having fun and meeting other young people!
Participants will have the opportunity to report on their experiences and findings at the next Youth Conference in 2020.
