The CJE NDG is proud to add the NDG Youth Ambassador program to its already numerous youth initiatives. Having at heart the involvement of youth in their neighborhood and the importance of introducing them to the decision-making processes that influence their daily lives, the CJE has set up this new program.
Description of the program
The Youth Ambassador NDG program consists of two intensive weekends of training ( in French), practical workshops and visits on what it is to participate on a Board of Directors and how decisions are made in their neighborhood and in their city. These two weekends will take place on April 2 and 3 and May 7 and 8, 2022. Between the two weekends, participants will have to participate in a virtual networking evening in order to choose the organizations that interest them and that they would like to visit. Once their choice is made, they will have the chance to attend a meeting of the board of directors of this organization as well as to visit the organization and learn more about its operation.
In addition, the program aims to introduce participants to what an ecological footprint is. Following the first weekend of training, they will be able to assess the footprint of the organizations with which they will be paired. They will then be able to bring this knowledge back to their schools and home.
To highlight the involvement of the participants, the program offers them a certificate of participation as well as a season pass for La Ronde. In addition, they have the chance to receive one of two scholarships worth $2,500.
To participate in the program, youth must be between the ages of 12 and 16 and be a resident of Montreal. Also they must have the consent form to participate signed by their parents.
