Nothing About Youth Without Youth
Young people want an equal opportunity to participate in society, and to be involved in decision-making and implementation. Our inaugural Youth Day is a community gathering designed by youth as a launchpad to empower young people to make a difference in community.
Youth are a cornerstone to building sustainable communities.
Their full participation in society strengthens social infrastructure and drives economic growth and development.
Children and youth make up 56% percent of the population of Wood Buffalo.
Our work is focused on creating an enabling environment that strengthens their sense of belonging, and channels their time and talent towards (re)building a more resilient community.
The inaugural Wood Buffalo Youth Day was inspired by the following local youth: Ana Radmanovic, Bismah Hassan; Chanakya Patel, Dhruv Patel, Fajar Khan, Jana Abdo, Jeet Undhad, Majd Daqqa, Mira Patel & Tamara Masuku.
