In order to fully connect youth to opportunities and opportunities to youth, the afternoon of the third and final day of the 2019 Youth Summit will be our first ever Opportunities Fair!
This event will see over 20 youth-serving organizations of all kinds (services, programs, recreation, education, etc.) come together in the style of a resource fair, but with a twist! Rather than simply providing information and handouts, all organizations at the Opportunities Fair will have to prepare a clear opportunity, a next step, for youth to become more involved and engaged in their community.
An opportunity can be many things.
It may look like a date for a volunteer training session that youth commit to attending. It could be an appointment for one-on-one or group counselling support. It could be a date for a try-out or an audition. It may be a job interview or some sort of professional development opportunity. It may be as simple as having youth sign up to attend a drop-in sports or arts group.
Regardless of what the actual opportunity is (something our staff will work on developing with the individual organizations), our goal is to have every single youth who attends the Opportunities Fair leave with that SEED planted for the new opportunity
