Ink Movement Mississauga Develops Young, Artistic Talent Through Time Capsule Conference

Yesterday, we found out what Girls Empowerment Movement has been doing for youth in our community thanks to Youth in Action Grants.

Whether or not you got to check out yesterday’s post, these grants are an opportunity focused on youth-led projects to address community issues in Peel Region. In 2016, $15,000 was funded by United Way of Peel Region and distributed to 10 youth-led projects through this granting opportunity.

Saturday is International Youth Day, and to celebrate, we wanted to highlight some of the incredible projects youth in our community implemented in the past year.

With World Youth Skills Day on Saturday, July 15, we know of a few upcoming opportunities where youth can get involved and build their skills in the community. If you’re young and looking for some incredible opportunities, you’ve come to the right place!

The key to getting involved as a young person – however you define young – is finding the right opportunities that fit your interests. Hopefully, you’ll like one (or all!) of these.
