Created and run by the Boys and Girls Club of Canada’s National Youth Council, the Express Yourself 2019 forum will bring youth from Clubs across Canada to explore and celebrate self-expression. Self-expression happens in many different forms—people can express themselves through the arts, through writing, through music, through sports, through technology—the possibilities are endless!
Our Education and Leadership Program Coordinator, Heather Fraser will supervise seven (7) Youth Ambassadors from our Club as they attend the National Youth Forum. The estimated total cost is $5,495 ($785 per person) and includes the Forum fee, accommodations, travel and meals.
Super motivated to attend, our Youth Ambassadors are doing their part raising funds to help cover the costs. Beginning with a goal of raising $500, these energetic youth have organized bake sales, pizza fundraisers, and other initiatives. They have already raised $150 and believe they can surpass their original goal!
