"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.
