Your Community is Diverse, Champion It!

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 free, online program to promote inclusion in Edmonton.

Diversity Awareness & Skill Building Youth Program

Are you a passionate advocate for diversity & inclusion?

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!

Program Components

Experience and Education

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

Engagement

Increase your social network. Become 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.

You will engage in mentorship opportunities to strengthen your 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 your school to earn up to 120 volunteer hours and education credits.
