Join the Nobody's Born A Racist 2.0 (NBR) Editorial Board
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 youth to join the Editorial Board for Nobody's Born A Racist 2.0 (NBR 2.0). NBR 2.0 is part of the SCC's 10-year committment to continue and strengthen efforts to address structural racism in Canada.
This editorial board will review resources and provide guidance and direction for the initial phase of NBR 2.0.
About the Project
As a member of the Editorial Board for Nobody's Born a Racist 2.0, you will receive capacity building, facilitator training, and further professional development opportunities to further influence change within your own community. The main objectives of the group are to:
- Ensure that youth that represent Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour communities impacted by systemic racism is at the forefront of leading this initiative.
- Engage the Editorial Board in a process in which they experience how youth voices are gathered to influence decision-makers and change systems to better support young people furthest away from opportunities.
- Engage youth in key activities that involve conducting research to generate content that will inform the implementation of the NBR Speaker Series.
The group will meet bi-monthly either on Tuesdays at 6 pm EST or Wednesdays at 6 pm EST.
You will be compensated for your time with honorarium.
