"Do The Work" Youth Forum on Allyship

Do the Work! Youth Forum on Allyship will explore social justice topics as well as develop allyship and advocacy skills among youth. This winter, Experiences Canada will deliver a series of seven bi-weekly webinars and workshops for 50 youth, aged 14-18. Selected topics will include Reconciliation; Mental Health; LGBTQ2+; Environmental Racism; Disability Justice, Islamophobia, and Social Media Impacts. Youth who complete the full webinar series will be invited to travel to Winnipeg to attend a 3-day in-person National Forum on Allyship from May 6-8, 2022. In Winnipeg, they will have the opportunity to apply their training, to share their ideas and strategies for community action and youth engagement, and to work collaboratively to produce their own podcast on youth allyship and/or advocacy.

Our Goal

Experiences Canada’s “Do The Work/Faites Le Travail!” program will provide Canadian youth with an opportunity to further their education about social justice issues within Canada and develop their allyship and advocacy competencies.

Our goal is to provide youth with an opportunity to connect with other youth who share their interest and commitment to inclusion and equality. We aim to offer a broader and more intersectional perspective on the systemic challenges and barriers faced by many young Canadians. By the end of this series, our goal is to help build confidence and skills among our youth so that they can be better allies and advocates within their own communities and networks.

The Allyship Forum Series

Experiences Canada has partnered with 7 amazing organizations who will help us deliver a series of one-hour long webinars (7 total) on various topics such as Islamophobia, Reconciliation, Mental Health, LGBTQ2+, Environmental Racism, Disability Justice, and Social Media Impacts. Youth registered in the full program will receive a second hour-long interactive workshop, including breakout sessions and discussion forums to allow youth to reflect on content, ask questions, and further explore the topics presented during the webinars. Youth who complete the full webinar series will be invited to travel to Winnipeg to attend a 3-day in-person National Forum on Allyship in Spring 2022.

In-Person Forum

The program will culminate with a 3-day in-person National Forum on Allyship where youth participants will have the opportunity to apply their training, share their ideas and strategies for community action and youth engagement, and to work collaboratively to produce their own podcasts.

The in-person component will be held in Winnipeg from May 6-8, 2022. Youth who successfully completed the online program will have the chance to meet in person, develop their online communications skills, and visit select Winnipeg destinations including the Canadian Museum of Human Rights.

Health safety will be our utmost priority. We will adhere to all local public health safety guidelines (social distancing, mask wearing, and screening protocols) and as added measures, we will administer on-site rapid testing for COVID-19 for all participants. As per federal regulations for public travel by air and rail, all participants must be fully vaccinated to attend.
