CBFY Power of Voice Youth Conference 2019
April 27 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
On Saturday, April 27, 2019, the Calgary Bridge Foundation for Youth will host its 4th Annual Youth Conference: The Power of Voice 2019 for immigrant youth in grades 7 to 12. The purpose of this conference is to create a platform through which newcomer youth can use their voices to make a difference, learn from the stories of others, and gain tools to help them become more resilient.
There are many challenges that newcomer youth face which can often inhibit them from realizing their full potential. Therefore, it is important to assist newcomer youth in realizing the benefit of using their voices to express themselves unapologetically.
The conference will host a series of interactive breakout sessions geared at providing youth the opportunity to use the power of their voices to make positive changes in our world. The youth will also get a chance to hear speakers and performers who have had similar challenges as them, and are now thriving in Canadian society.
This event is completely free! Snacks and lunch will be provided.
