    Allyship in Action! - Free Youth Forum

    The Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity presents Allyship in Action
    Are you a youth? Apply as a participant or mentor.



    August 23rd-27th in Ottawa.

    Travel expenses, meals and accommodation will be provided for successful applicants and mentors that attend.

    The Allyship in Action! Forum, presented by Scotiabank, is a free 5-day educational opportunity for approximately 75 youth from across the country. The event will primarily take place at the Terry Fox Centre in Ottawa, with a downtown field trip as one component of the Forum. This program consists of interactive workshops, educational activities, and keynote speakers. Forum participants who complete the program will gain the tools and knowledge needed to address discrimination and promote diversity in their schools and communities. 

     August 24-26 will consist of themed programming, practical workshops aimed at enhancing planning and logistical skills, a professional networking event, and a field trip-day. As a Participant at this Forum, an individual will gain the tools necessary to approach allyship and activism through an anti-oppressive lens. 

     We are looking for student leaders aged 15-19 (with some exceptions) to apply, via a registration form that is attached for potential applicants to complete. Interested parties can email me their completed form and I will be in touch to schedule a phone interview. We are also looking for experienced youth who are interested in becoming youth-mentors to assist with the program. 

    The registration form for participants can be found here.

    The registration form for mentors can be found here
