Your Campus Connection
Youth Advisory Board members (YAB) (ages 19-29) facilitate the Young Water Speaks Youth Storytelling Contest by running virtual workshops for youth in schools and communities across Canada. Join this country-wide community to inspire future water leaders to share their stories.
Length of term as a YAB is 8 months (July 11, 2021- March 31, 2022). Approximate time commitment is 4-10 volunteer hours per month.
Young Water Speaks is a national storytelling contest connecting youth across Canada with water. Using online webinars and workshops, the YAB help youth (ages 7-18) grow as storytellers and encourage them to share fiction and non-fiction stories inspired by the rich history and culture as well as their personal experiences and memories that flow through Canada's waters.
YAB members assist with promoting and delivering the program’s content and resources
YAB members support the delivery of the contest by leading school group virtual storytelling training workshops.
YAB members will provide support by creating educational and engaging online program content (water/nature/cultural photos and videos with educational context, their own water stories, as resources for the youth participants & project promotion).
