We want you to be involved in a Next Gen Action Group. This opportunity will give you the chance to share your voice and develop actions to address the priority areas that you told us are important to you in the Youth Needs and Assets Assessment.
The Next Gen Action Groups are safe spaces for youth and young adults ages-14-24 to make an impact, lead and have a voice, explore your passions, share ideas, build skills, and test solutions to realize change in your community. The Next Gen Action groups will also play a key role in informing and developing a Youth Strategy for Strathcona County.
An opportunity to make a difference in your community and shape its future. An opportunity to be a leader and a change maker. An opportunity to build your resume and develop your skill sets – problem-solving, leadership skills, and team-building skills. An opportunity to receive a certificate of participation from the Mayor of Strathcona County and a letter of reference from Family and Community Services. An opportunity to help develop a Youth Strategy for Strathcona County
Your community needs you!
Only you can provide your unique voice to help shape the future by sharing your:
Enthusiastic energy, creativity, fresh perspective, and knowledge about current challenges facing youth and young adults
The Next Gen Action Groups will convene virtually until it is safe to meet in person. The groups will meet between March 2021 – November 2021 and you will be able to choose to attend sessions focused on issues and topics you’re interested in.
We want to hear from you! Participate in upcoming rallies on gathering spaces, mental health, and transportation. You will have the opportunity to provide input about community needs. Talk with people from local organizations interested in these topics and establish a community vision for Next Gen-friendly Strathcona County.
