This programme is working towards:

Active Citizens:

Youth-led social change
for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

 

Through workshops, subject matter experts, and networking opportunities, AC provides youth with the leadership skills
they need to take action on the SDGs in their communities.

Attend a 3-day interactive training workshop to develop the soft skills (self-awareness, knowledge of community/issues) essential for developing a social action project and in their careers at large. Active Citizens provides young leaders in Canada with the opportunity to connect with other young leaders who share a drive to bring about positive social and/or environmental change in their communities

After the training, participants have a chance to attend the Youth Innovation Summit on Parliament Hill in Ottawa. Pitch and receive feedback on your social action idea, attend workshops and networking sessions with experienced professionals and innovation leaders in the public and private sectors, and have the chance to receive funding to take your initiative to the next level.

Throughout the programme, participants are supported in developing their social action projects through a network of like-minded peers and practiced local and international social entrepreneurs and change agents.

Programme Testimonials

Honestly the best programme/training/conference I have been to. This is largely owed to how fontastic the team leaders were.
I can't emphasize enough how smart and flexible they were. Really good at thinking on their feet too. Their energy was infections
and I hope to see them again soon!
