In response to the Coronavirus, OSP’s Youth program will be delivered remotely. Our team will connect with you through email and phone calls. The training sessions will occur via ZOOM.

Diversity Awareness & Skills Building Youth Program

Creating opportunities between youth and the community. OSP assists community-minded youth by supporting them to design a campaign highlighting the importance of diversity. With the goal to provide opportunities for growth, we have developed a program to promote inclusion in Edmonton.

If you identify within the communities of women, indigenous peoples, visible minorities, LGBTQ2+, or persons with disabilities; the Diversity Awareness and Skills Building Youth Program is designed to set the stage for youth (aged 16 – 30) to pursue a self-directed volunteer diversity initiative!

Experience and Education

Interactive sessions to enhance your knowledge and understanding of diversity; from self-discovery workshops to guest speakers and more!


Increase your social network. Become a support ally – an ”agent for change” – while making lifelong friendships with people from diverse backgrounds.

Execution Evaluation

Design your very own initiative, project, or campaign to address diversity/inclusion in your workplace or school such as rallies, anti-bullying campaigns, and diversity celebrations.

Youth will engage in mentorship opportunities to strengthen their knowledge of diverse cultures and collective identities, acquire the knowledge on what it takes to be a strong ally of community support, earn a certificate and possibly work with their school to earn up to 120 volunteer hours and education credits.
