The purpose of the youth council is to empower youth by supporting their personal and collective visions for a future without sexualized violence. Some potential projects may include: developing a new logo for Project Respect, developing social media content to share about consent and resources, creating merchandise for the council, and planning the Youth Social Action Camp! Since this program is youth-led, it will be up each cohort to decide which direction to take. 

Project Respect is committed to creating an environment where all voices are heard. Our goal is to work in an anti-oppressive way, meaning that we view sexualized violence as connected to many different structures that exclude certain voices. Some of these structures are: colonialism, racism, gender-based violence, and ableism.  

Apply for the 2021-2022 Youth Council!

Are you interested in making a difference in your community? Project Respect is recruiting youth between the ages of 14 and 19 who are interested in starting conversations about sexualized violence and consent, while helping create a community where EVERYONE is respected.
