About the Forum
Youth Encouraging Lasting Leadership (YELL) Youth Council, a program hosted by Synergy Youth and Community Development Society (Synergy), invites you to participate in the first ever Southern Alberta Youth Council Forum (SAYCF), an event for the future leaders of our communities, run by the future leaders of our communities.
As a member of a Youth Council or Advisory Group, you are dedicated to improving the community you live in and work to inspire the youth that live within it, both of which are not easy tasks. However, by coming to this Forum, you will be given the tools to make your efforts more successful, impactful, and above all, more connected. You will be surrounded by like-minded youth from southern Alberta and will be given the opportunity to make connections that can empower change within you, your council, and your community.
The two-day event in April will present a diverse program of inspirational youth speakers, dynamic workshops, and actionable discussions that will leave you with a renewed passion for what you do. It provides a unique opportunity for Council members to come together, share ideas, network outside of their immediate circles, and to potentially collaborate on larger projects in the future. Presently, most community Youth Councils and Advisory Groups are limited to only serving their local communities. One of the outcomes of this event would combat that by creating an integrated community of youth, spread out across southern Alberta, who can draw on each other’s strengths and tackle larger issues.
