Apply for the the Project Respect Top Left Youth Conference!
When: March 7-9, 2014
Where: Camp Barnard, 3202 Young Lake Road, Sooke, British Columbia
Project Respect and the Students Commission of Canada are hosting the first British Columbia Top Left Youth Conference March 7-9, 2014! And YOU are invited!
The Project Respect Top Left Youth Conference is a three day (two night) sleepover conference for youth aged 12-19 held at Camp Barnard in Sooke. Approximately 40 youth from across Greater Victoria and surrounding regions will meet together to explore how and why violence and exclusion happen, identify the issues that are most important and relevant in their local communities, and work together to create youth-led social action projects they can do back home to address these issues.
We'll have the chance to explore social issues and action through theatre, art, media, discussions, nature walks, campfire circles, games, and other awesome activities. The conference has been planned and will be facilitated by youth and adults together, and there will be opportunities for all youth to take ownership of the conference.
