The Youth Leadership Program is a priority of the Atlantic Summer Institute on Healthy and Safe Communities (ASI). The program will build on lessons learned from previous ASI programs and will provide an opportunity for young people to attend and have a voice in shaping the future agenda for children and youth in Atlantic Canada.
ASI has learned from previous events how important it is to foster intergenerational learning. There will be time for youth to participate in the full ASI 2019 program through presentations and roundtable discussions, as well as convene separately to develop long lasting connections. The program will be planned with input from youth leaders who attended past ASI events and professionals who work in organizations serving youth.
ASI 2019 will support at least five youth from each Atlantic province to come together in Charlottetown for this event. Young people between the ages of 18 and 25 who are affiliated with a community group and have experience/interest in being an advocate or leader are encouraged to apply. The application process will begin in late spring.
Thank you to TD, the Title Sponsor of the ASI Youth Leadership Program.
