Youth Summit - Teen Investment
Apr 25, 2012
Community involvement is a huge part of what makes our area a great place to be and it’s never too early to get youth involved with community pride.
This Saturday from 10-4pm, the City of Grande Prairie is hosting a Youth Summit, giving our youth an opportunity to be heard and provide input to help shape Grande Prairie’s future.
The summit will be an interactive all-day session with Mary Zolkiewski from Youth Central in Calgary. Youth Central’s main premise is based on the firm belief that young people who experience involvement and philanthropy at an early age grow up with an ongoing sense of responsibility.
Beyond the annual summit, interested youth can get involved with the youth council to further their involvement with city decisions.
Youth-based events like this are a great way to get teens invested in their community, creating future leaders in our area.
