Youth Leadership Workshop Series. March 21st - 23rd 2022

HUI and TRACKS have been working together to co-create a youth leadership workshop. We believe that youth are key in making a change in our community, especially with their many gifts.

The workshop series will start with Jaida, the Oshkwazin Program Assistant, sharing about orange shirts and their importance. All while learning how to bead an orange tee pin.

Then we move on to the next portion with Rhianyth where she will guide youth in understanding disability justice, which is connected to our work here at HUI.

Lastly, Larissa will navigate some social justice issues, discuss leadership and prompt youth to search for their passion… whatever that might be!    

Space is limited for the beading workshop so sign up as soon as you can!    

We are looking forward to seeing you there! Register for each workshop below!
