Join the #CanadaWeWant Youth Movement
Are you a young person aged 12- 25? Do you feel passionately about an issue, and are you looking for a way to get involved and make a lasting impact?
We're looking for Facilitators to lead our #CanadaWeWant Youth Movement. Our vision is for each facilitator to become firmly rooted in the Student Commission of Canada (SCC) culture and to get actively engaged in our processes. To achieve this vision, there are four main ways you can get involved:
- Participate in one-time events/consultations, such as providing input on a grant proposal/idea or reviewing knowledge mobilisation products/key messages;
- Identify one specific project you would like to be closely connected to and get involved more directly in a "hands-on" role to execute the project deliverables;
- Support & deliver the #CanadaWeWant summits and conferences; and
- Participate in Sharing the Stories research to track the impact of your experience.
About the Projects
- Sharing the Stories - Getting involved in this project will develop your evaluation design skills, further your learning about youth programming & data analysis, and require you to supporti data entry. You may have the opportunity to co-coach one of our StS groups.
- Be the Program - You will learn about and help to develop a curriculum for healthy relationships, and prevention of dating violence. You will have the opportunity to develop & co-facilitate trainings, support data collection & evaluation for research activities, and design knowledge mobilisation products.
- Safer Spaces Model - You will learn about Social Identify Formation (SIF) and mental health, and help to develop a curriculum for Safer Spaces training. You will have the opportunity co-facilitate trainings with an adult ally.
- CEYE Youth Advisory - The Centre of Excellence for Youth Engagement (CEYE) will have you working alongside our academic partners at Bishops and Brock Universities to support long-term, ongoing research projects with the SCC. You'll help provide input into some of the studies we are participating in, and identify further areas for research.
- Nobody's Born A Racist 2.0 (NBR 2.0) - You will identify & develop anti-racist practices that align with the SCC's four pillars, influencing your peers and local community. You will have the opportunity to support & deliver anti-racism training.
- Technical - You will have the opportunity to support with coding our platforms (website & backend database), ensuring our platforms stay current & relevant for youth audiences.
There may be other projects that you can get involved with. To learn more about the projects click here!
The Facilitator Roster meets together as a group monthly on the second Wednesday of every month from 6:30pm - 8:30pm ET (Eastern Standard Time). If you are connected with a project, you will also be expected to meet with your project team regularly in between meetings.
