CITY OF SAULT STE MARIE
On January 30, the Sault Ste. Marie Innovation Centre (SSMIC) announced the Youth Engagement Forum 2014 to be held in Sault Ste. Marie on February 11 at Algoma’s Water Tower Inn.
Youth service providers and adult allies in the Algoma district will take part in the forum, setting out to engage youth (aged 15-29) and youth workers.
Mayor Debbie Amaroso advocates for the initiative saying, “The Youth Engagement Forum 2014 is an excellent opportunity to connect relative organizations directly to the youth in our community. I am in full support of creating a space for youth not only to learn about the resources and supports in Sault Ste. Marie, but also for a two-way dialogue between providers and youth who use their services. This is a great example of the grassroots community engagement approaches that will aid in making our community Age-Friendly.”
The one-day event will be presented in a two-part format.
Part One runs from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. with a focus on youth service providers.
Part Two runs from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. with a focus on youth.
Youth, or any others interested in attending the event, can register by visiting here.
The Youth Engagement Forum 2014 is funded with support from the Ministry of Economic Development, Trade and Employment, the Ministry of Research and Innovation, and the Algoma Workforce Investment Corporation.
