PEI youth summit at Holland College
YDAY, PEI’s youth summit, takes place October 27 at Holland College in Charlottetown. Participants will develop youth-led solutions for issues raised at last year’s summit. Youth aged 16 to 34 are encouraged to register at www.ypei.ca/yday by October 6.
Some themes raised from YDAY 2016 included: bridging the gap from education to secure employment; youth engagement and citizenship; celebrate newcomers and encourage diversity; narratives and prevalent attitudes; foundational issues and social supports to young Islanders; and Island infrastructure.
Sally Ng, CEO of The Triple Effect, will facilitate YDAY 2017. She works locally and across Canada to foster a collaborative and creative environment, specializing in startup community development, corporate innovation and technology coaching.
Ng will lead group exercises and discussion for the first half of the day. In the second half, Robyn Tingley, author of The 10 Essentials for the Motivated Millenial will speak, and Island Advance will lead an entrepreneur panel. For updates see @peiyday on Facebook and @ydaypei on Twitter.
