The Atlantic Summer Institute on Healthy and Safe Communities (ASI) is seeking volunteers for the 2018 ASI Forum: Let’s Act Together! Developing a whole society approach to promoting child and youth mental health, to be held from August 20-22 at the University of Prince Edward Island in Charlottetown, PEI.

Mounting global evidence shows that mental health is an issue for the entire population, requiring a whole society and whole of government approach to make an impact.  Evidence tells us we need to start with an investment in children and youth. The Forum will gather community leaders, educators, policy makers, health practitioners, researchers, justice representatives, parents/caregivers, youth leaders… everyone interested in collaborating to improve mental health!

Volunteering at the Forum is a great way to attend and assist within concurrent sessions and network with delegates during the event. We have a variety of volunteer shifts available throughout the Forum, at our registration and information desk, at plenary and concurrent sessions, and more.

As a volunteer, you will receive:

  • Opportunity to attend sessions on the day of your shift (subject to availability) without paying the registration fee
  • Refreshments during nutrition breaks and lunch
  • Invitation to a thank-you BBQ event, post-Forum
  • Networking opportunities and volunteer experience to list on your resume!

To sign up for volunteer shifts, visit: www.volunteersignup.org/A3BY9

If you have questions about volunteering, email Liz Sajdak: volunteer@asi-iea.ca
