CALL FOR YOUTH PARTICIPATION: "Connection Through Spirit" Project

Introductory Workshop - Saturday, May 3, 1:00 to 4:00pm at the Unitarian Church of Vancouver


The Multifaith Action Society of BC, in partnership with the Vancouver Foundation, is seeking spiritually-inclined youth aged 15-25 to participate in a new interfaith bridging project entitled “Connection Through Spirit.”

 

Participants will join an intercultural Youth Leadership Council with the goal of planning and producing a series of special events aimed at facilitating interfaith and intergenerational dialogue and collaboration.

 

Ultimately, the goal is to help create a more cohesive and co-creative society by empowering youth to become agents of positive change within their communities, build bridges between and within faiths, and create constructive collaborations.

 

Participants will:

  • Join a welcoming, intercultural community of like-minded youth
  • Share in an unforgettable journey of personal and professional development
  • Receive hands-on training and mentorship from community leaders
  • Contribute to the advancement of interfaith dialogue and cooperation
  • Gain valuable skills in public speaking, event planning, community organizing, and other aspects of youth leadership
  • Develop the skills and confidence to step into positions of leadership in their own communities

 

Please note that participation in this project will require an investment of 15-25 hours over the course of the year. Honoraria and travel stipends will be provided to participating youth.   

Interested youth are invited to attend an introductory information session on:

 

Saturday, March 3, 1:00 to 4:00pm
