Connecte, Youth Engagement Project

Where: British Columbia When: October 01, 2019 to March 31, 2020 Age: 12 volunteers, 12 BC francophone associations Contact: [email protected]

Connecte is THE youth engagement project created by the CJFCB in partnership with Employment and Social Development Canada!

It is intended for youth between the ages of 14 and 25 who wish to commit to their community, as well as to all associations and French-speaking organizations concerned with making the voice of young people heard.

OBJECTIVES

  • Strengthen the links between young Francophones and their community through commitment and voluntary service;
  • Empower young people in a sustainable way through training and increase their sense of leadership;
  • Support local initiatives and share good practices of engagement.

FIRST EDITION: 2019/2020

Connecte is looking for 12 young volunteers, 12 mentors and 12 associations. Education, health, social economy, sustainable developments… are all thematic that can be exploited.

The 12 selected students will receive a scholarship of $ 1200 to achieve their mission, a personalized support and training throughout the year!

ENHANCE YOUTH COMMITMENT

Connecte will chair a Consultation Forum on Youth Engagement in March 2020, bringing together all the project stakeholders.

Will follow a strategic guide on the integration of youth in the Francophone community and a resource guide containing all the good practices and initiatives carried out.
