NS Youth Action

Overview

Wisdom2Action has launched our Nova Scotia Youth Action Team with a facilitated weekly space for youth to come together and discuss issues that matter to them, learn more about how they can get involved in their community, and to take action.

The team will meet weekly on Zoom for 1-hour. Meetings will have space for team members to share topics they care about with other youth, and to have support in ways to take action. Meetings will also feature information sharing on important issues that impact young people, and opportunities for youth to get involved outside team Zoom meetings.

What does a member of the NS Youth Action Team do?

  • Comes to weekly 1-hour meetings
  • Shares issues they care about with other NS youth
  • Learns ways to influence others and drive change
  • Takes action and gets involved in other projects when they can

Examples of types of issues:

  • Children and youth health

Who can sign up?

  • Any young person between the ages of 12-19 in Nova Scotia who is passionate about youth issues or wants to learn more about how they can get involved.
  • If you’re under 18 you’ll need to get your parent or guardian to sign a permission slip once you sign up, if you don’t have access to a parent or guardian you can email Alyssa so she can support you.
