Youth Program

Creating opportunities between youth and the community.

OSP wants to assist 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.

Whether you identify within the communities of women, indigenous peoples, visible minorities, LGBTQ2+, or persons with disabilities; the Diversity Awareness and Skill 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!

Engagement

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 certifications and possibly work with their school to earn up to 125 volunteer hours and education credits.
