Building leadership among vulnerable youth

COLLABORATION FOR DISADVANTAGED YOUTH STARTS OCTOBER 17TH!

On October 17th from 5:30 – 7:30 pm, we are launching a collaboration for disadvantaged youth in Guelph-Wellington.
The focus is to bring together different stakeholders interested in forming a collaboration around engaging disadvantaged youth in social change and entrepreneurship initiatives and opportunities. The initial launch will bring together different stakeholder for a creative brainstorming session.  Two representatives from the Laidlaw Foundation will share insights about regional youth-led projects they have supported and funded, and will be available to answer questions about various funding possibilities for this collaboration.  We would love to see youth come out to this initial launch, as our hope is that this project will be the first step towards building a sustainable platform for youth organizing and leadership within our community.  Connect to share your insights about this project, and stay tuned in for inspirational youth-organized events and workshops by youth and for youth, taking place from Oct-Dec 2011 at 10 Carden.
