Diversity Awareness & Skill 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 an ”agent for change” while making lifelong friendships with people from diverse backgrounds.
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 for other marginalized groups, discuss productive ways to manage micro-aggressions and be your own advocate, earn a certificate and possibly work with their school to earn up to 120 volunteer hours and education credits.
