This year, we will explore the many facets of Sustainability and discussing actions that we can encourage and take to spark positive change in our society. There will be workshops on everything from water and agriculture to climate change and energy. For more information visit ewbyouthconference2017.wordpress.com!
Youth Venture is dedicated to fostering global citizenship in youth by engaging them on important issues with a fun and interactive approach.
In our school outreach program, we present free educational workshops to classrooms in the Lower Mainland. Our workshops incorporate hands-on learning and role-playing to introduce students to different perspectives.
We also host an annual Youth Conference geared towards senior high school students. In the past our conference themes have featured Leadership in International Development and Renewable Energy. This year, we are present Systems Thinking for a Sustainable Future.
Our volunteers are able to engage with youth and gain a deeper understanding on our workshop topics, as well as develop project-planning and public speaking skills. Send us an email to find out more: firstname.lastname@example.org.
