March 3-4 – Youth With Youth Leadership Day

Vancouver Island Inclusive Leaders aged 15 to 30 are invited to co-facilitate an upcoming youth with youth Leadership Day.

Where? North Cowichan, Vancouver Island, BC

When? Tuesday, March 3 starting at 4 pm to Wednesday, March 4, ending at 1 pm

What are we planning? The Inclusive Leadership Co-op is joining with other non-profits in our community to host an unforgettable youth with youth leadership day at a local high school.

Inclusive Leaders age 15-30 are invited to join our team of co-facilitators.

Co-facilitators will gather together on location in North Cowichan on March 3 at 4 pm.

We will build our team of relaxed, skilled, confident and enthusiastic Inclusive Leaders who are well prepared to co-facilitate this unique leadership gathering on March 4. Meals and accommodation will be provided for any out-of-town co-facilitators.

At 8:30 am on March 4, we will be welcoming about 30 students who have stepped out of their comfort zones and taken a break from regular classes to experience a safe, respectful, interesting and fun morning that will get all of us thinking differently about diversity, inclusion and leadership.

Co-facilitators will be well-prepared to guide students through a series of co-operative challenges and small group explorations of these questions:

  • What if our differences are not problems – but are gifts that enrich our communities?
  • What if everyone could be safe and encouraged to just be who we are?
  • What if our different personalities, cultures, abilities, talents, concerns and ideas are what it takes to make a world of difference throughout our schools and communities?

How to get involved: Contact Linda Hill, Coordinator of Inclusive Leadership Education as soon as possible. Email or text/phone 250-510-8354.  Hopefully you can also be part of our planning meeting on Wed Feb 19 from 4 to 7.

We are thankful for funding from the Youth 2020 Can Initiative and from the Department of Canadian Heritage that is making this youth with youth leadership day possible!
