YOUTH LEADERSHIP PROGRAM

 
 

PROGRAM

Through a series of workshops, the Youth Leadership Program will give youth the opportunity to teach their peers about some of the common social barriers they face both in sport and in life, and how to overcome them. These workshops will enhance their overall awareness, learn how to help someone in need and how to use promising practices on their team and on the field. Any interested youth in Canada will be able to implement this program in their community. The topics covered in this program include:

• Mental Health

• Bullying

• Civic Engagement

• Cultural Awareness

• Mixed Abilities

Workshops will be led by youth in major cities across Canada and youth will have the option to either sign up as a facilitator or participant. Individuals who decide to be a facilitator will find information on how to run a workshop on the Everyone’s Game website including training, presentations and all the information necessary to successfully run a workshop. Both facilitators and participants will receive a certificate at the end and secondary students can also receive volunteer hours. All training, resources and participation is free.
