Young people are the future of nonprofit leadership and it is important for them to be included at the decision-making table.
What is Youth @ the Table?
Supported by Canada Service Corps, Youth @ the Table is a province-wide initiative seeking to engage youth ages 18-30 in shaping their communities.
Participants will spend at least six months from September 2019 until March 2020 collaborating with a nonprofit organization to explore and impact a social issue they care about. Volunteer Alberta will match youth participants with a nonprofit where they will be engaged at the governance level on a board, committee, or council.
Youth bring fresh perspectives to the complex social issues being addressed by our sector and provide unique insights on changing community needs. Their voices are essential in creating a sustainable future and ensuring that the work we do as a sector is relevant.
