Join a great volunteer project and get connected with other youth. If you are between 15-29 years old you are invited to join the Nanaimo Youth 20/20 Can Project. Under the umbrella of Volunteer Nanaimo this project creates opportunities for youth to engage in volunteering in the community and to turn their passions into projects.
We have some great workshops coming up this month. The first one is called Getting the Word Out, a communication workshop for youth with Lois Peterson on March 10th. Lois will be teaching us how to create effective posters that reach our audience. The second one is a Spring Break Workshop with WorkBC to learn about interview basics and setting yourself up for success on March 17th. For more information or to sign up to attend these workshops, send an email to youth2020cannanaimo@gmail.
During the pandemic Youth 20/20 Can members are still actively volunteering! We have had to think outside the box to create volunteer opportunities that can be done in the safety of our own homes. We meet on zoom to brainstorm about ideas, work on projects that matter to our members and then together we turn ideas into reality. Youth develop skills such as team building, project management, leadership, positive risk-taking, and confidence.
